The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will hold a workshop on October 2, 2013 to explore the possibility of a two-year licensing process for hydropower development at non-powered dams and closed-loop pumped storage projects.
Citing the project as expensive, inefficient and environmentally unsound, there has been a huge public opposition to the proposed Hook Canyon project which would require construction of a new 160 foot high dam on the Fish Hook Creek in Rich County, Utah. FERC granted a preliminary permit for the project in September 2006.
