FERC Issues Preliminary Permit For a New Dam

Despite strong opposition from stakeholders, including HRC members, FERC has issued a preliminary permit to Boundary Creek Hydro, a subsidiary of Symbiotics seeking to develop hydropower on the Boundary Creek near Bonners, Idaho.  The proposal includes building a diversion dam and a 6.4 mile long diversion pipe to be partially buried under a reconstructed road.
