Susitna Dam Study Report Meetings Begin Wednesday

by Phillip Manning ~ October 14th, 2014

Beginning on Wednesday, the Alaska Energy Authority will hold meetings to discuss the initial study report for the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project.  Wednesday’s discussion will include study reports on fish in the Susitna River drainage.  Those studies have recently drawn criticism from the National Marine Fisheries Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  AEA maintains that criticism is unfounded.

Other meetings will cover water, ice, plants and wildlife, geology, and social studies.  The overall objective of the meetings is to allow stakeholders and AEA to discuss the studies.  The outcome of the meetings will be a potentially revised plan for second-year studies in 2015.

The full schedule of meetings, as well as draft agendas, is available here.
