CROWN HYDRO’S LATEST EFFORT
On January 20, 2012 attorneys for Crown Hydro submitted another “progress report” to FERC. Crown Hydro is now attempting to work with the Army Corps of Engineers to relocate its proposed hydro power plant so that it can bypass the MPRB and local control. Park Watch, however, has heard that this proposal involves the tail races and, if so, there could be no construction without Park Board approval.
