Official Title

To extend a project of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission involving the Cannonsville Dam.

Summary

(Sec.1)This bill authorizes the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), upon request, to extend for up to eight years the time period during which construction must commence on the Cannonsville Hydroelectric Project located on the West Branch of the Delaware River in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. (The City of New York was granted a construction license for the Cannonsville Hydroelectric Project on May 13, 2014.) Additionally, FERC may reinstate the construction license if it is expired.
    No to dams! THey destroy the waterway, the eco-system, the riparian area, and the recreational use of the river! They also cause loss of precious water due to evaporation. Learn the lessons from past dams. Pursue solar, wind and geothermal instead.

    Hydropower is an underrepresented renewable recourse for its ecological costs but the overall benefits outweigh the costs; especially its low carbon footprint.
