The following is Crown Hydro’s notice of their forthcoming public meeting, as it appeared in the Star Tribune on November 9:

Notice of Meeting to Discuss Proposed Amendment to FERC License for Crown Mill Upper Saint Anthony Falls Hydroelectric Project

Crown Hydro, LLC holds a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) license to construct and operate the Upper Saint Anthony Falls Hydroelectric Project, Project No. 11175, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota on the west bank of the Mississippi River at Upper St. Anthony Falls. An application is being prepared to amend its existing license to, in part, shift the location of the project’s powerhouse and discharge tunnel. The proposed new powerhouse location would be approximately 150 feet north, in the headrace canal adjacent to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer’s lock facility. To engage with the public and resource agencies, a consultation meeting has been scheduled to solicit comments on its proposed license amendment. This meeting will take place at the time and location described below:

3:30pm, Tuesday, November 26, 2013
Minneapolis Central Library, Pohlad Hall, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, 55401

The meeting will provide an opportunity for individuals to learn more about the proposed changes to the planned Upper Saint Anthony Falls Hydroelectric Project, a renewable source of electricity, and to provide comments on the Proposed Project.

If you would like to submit comments about the project, please provide your name, affiliation, address, along with your comments to crownhydro@gmail.com .  Comments received by December 31, 2013 will be used as part of scoping for the license amendment process.
