Dam Delay

May 10, 2012 | Mike Lawson

We received this from the HFF today...

PacificCorp was slightly delayed starting the drawdown while they awaited approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. They got that approval yesterday afternoon and this morning they removed the downstream coffer dam. They plan to open the bypass tunnel to begin the drawdown tomorrow.

Unfortunately this means the drawdown will be at the most critical time just as the fishing season opens at Ora Bridge. Again, as no excavation work is planned in the river channel this year, we really don’t think the water will look near as bad as last fall.
