PacifiCorp Energy files for low-impact hydro certification for Oregon project

The Low Impact Hydropower Institute announced that PacifiCorp Energy has submitted an application for LIHI certification of the North Umpqua Hydroelectric Project in Oregon.

The North Umpqua project is located in south-central Oregon on the North Umpqua River and two of its tributaries in Douglas County. The project includes eight hydroelectric developments, with a combined capacity of 185 MW.

The voluntary LIHI program is designed to help consumers identify environmentally sound, low-impact hydropower facilities. Certification under the program means the owner can market the project as a certified low-impact facility.

LIHI is taking public comments on this application until Feb. 9, 2010. For information, visit the LIHI Internet site, www.lowimpacthydro.org.
