The South Canal is a key irrigation feature of the Uncompahgre Irrigation Project that supplies water to many farms and residences in Montrose and Delta counties. The hydropower project would generate electricity using the existing irrigation flows in the South Canal and thus would operate only in the irrigation season. One or two units would be constructed along the canal to take advantage of the reliable irrigation flows and "drops" in elevation of the canal.
The public meeting will be on March 9, 2011 at 7 p.m. at the Delta Montrose Electric Association office in Montrose located at 11925 6300 Rd.
Reclamation is also seeking comments for preparation of a draft environmental assessment on the proposed project.
