On March 20, 2009, Hydro Energy Technologies, LLC filed an application, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Lake Milton Hydroelectric Project, to be located on Mahoning River, in Mahoning County, Ohio.
The proposed Lake Milton Hydroelectric Project would be located at the existing Lake Milton Dam owned by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The dam operations are supervised by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Lake Milton Dam is 760-feet-long and 54-feet-high, which includes a 650-long spillway and four 60-inch-diameter gate valves.
The proposed project would consist of: (1) A new powerhouse at the base of the existing outlet works; (2) one or more turbine/generators with total installed capacity of 1.2 megawatts; (3) two 60-inch-diameter, 7-foot-long penstocks; (4) a new 320-foot-long transmission line; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The Lake Milton Dam Project would have an estimated average annual generation of 6,929 megawatts-hours, which would be sold to a local utility.
