HG&E Seeks Corps Permit for Holyoke Plan

The Holyoke Gas and Electric Department (HG&E) is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, to conduct work in waters of the U.S. in conjunction with the building of the Hadley Falls Station Downstream Fish Passage Project in Holyoke, Mass.

The Holyoke Gas and Electric Department proposes to conduct work and to discharge dredged and/or fill material into approximately 39,675 square feet of U.S. waters as part of the Hadley Falls Station Downstream Fish Passage Project. This work is proposed within the Connecticut River at the Holyoke Hydroelectric Dam, off of Gatehouse Road, in Holyoke.

The goal of this project is to improve downstream fish passage for diadromous fish species, such as the federally-listed endangered shortnose sturgeon.

This project includes modifications to the existing bascule gate (900 square feet) and the installation of an upstream fish exclusion rack system (6,600 square feet) as well as the downstream training wall, flow deflector, and plunge pool system (13,125 square feet). These fish passage improvements also include upgrades to the existing fish passage conduits.
