FERC Issues Condit Dam License Surrender Order
The Federal Energy Regulatory Agency (FERC) has at long last issued their “ORDER ACCEPTING SURRENDER OF LICENSE, AUTHORIZING REMOVAL OF PROJECT FACILITIES, AND DISMISSING APPLICATION FOR NEW LICENSE“.
This is a major and key step toward removal of the Condit Dam which is now anticipated in October, 2011. The document actually has an amazing amount of detail regarding the process begun in October, 1999. It’s been a long while coming but it looks like this project has entered the final phase and that we will soon see the White Salmon River running wild and free all the way to the Columbia.
