The licensee is proposing to not install the authorized 750 kW mini-hydro power facility in the spillway. The original license was issued in October 1963 and amended in 1986 for the addition of a mini-hydro power facility in the spillway to utilize minimum flow releases. The licensee stated that it has made a good faith effort to initiate construction of the spillway mini-hydro power project, however, it has been unable to market the power at a profitable rate. The licensee will continue to comply with the project's continuous minimum flow requirement of 144 cfs.
