On July 9, 2010, 5440 Hydro Inc. filed an application, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Brooklyn Dam Hydroelectric Project (Brooklyn Dam), to be located on the Ammonoosuc River near the Town of Groveton, Coos County, New Hampshire.

The project would produce an estimated average annual generation of about 3,000 megawatt-hours, which would be sold directly to a local utility.
