Residents may share ideas on proposed dams

Free Flow Power has applied for license to install hydroelectric units on six dams on the Muskingum River. There will be two public scoping meetings which will be recorded by a stenographer and become part of the official record. They will be held Tuesday June 25, 7 p.m., Twin City Opera House, McConnelsville; and Wednesday June 26, 7 p.m., Holiday Inn Express, Zanesville.

Prior to these official meetings there will be Environmental Site Reviews as follows:

Devola, June 25, 9 a.m., at DNR parking lot at end of River Road, Devola.

Lowell, June 25, 10 a.m., at DNR parking lot on Muskingum River Road, Lowell.

Beverly, June 25, 11 a.m., at DNR parking lot at Muskingum River Park Lock 4, on Third Street.

McConnelsville, June 25, noon, DNR parking lot on N. Riverside Drive at 14th St.

Rokeby and Philo are scheduled for June 26.

If questions, contact Dan Lissner of FFP at (978) 283-2822.

Anyone with an interest in this project is urged to attend – the site reviews to have a better understanding of each project and one of the scoping meetings to have your perspective become part of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s consideration of these applications.
