The project, proposed by the Uncompahgre Valley Water Users Association, will be located at existing Reclamation facilities on the Montrose and Delta Canal at Shavano Falls. A Lease of Power Privilege will authorize the use of federal facilities and Uncompahgre Project water to construct, operate, and maintain a 2.8 megawatt hydropower facility.
The hydropower plant will operate on irrigation water conveyed in the Montrose and Delta Canal, and no new diversions will occur as a result of the hydropower project. Construction activities and operation of the hydropower plant will not affect the delivery of irrigation water.
The final environmental assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact is available on our web site or a copy can be received by contacting Reclamation.
