- Excerpt from Hydro Items:

H-1: FFP Qualified Hydro 14, LLC, Docket No. P-13579-002;

Western Minnesota Municipal Power Agency, Docket No. P-14491-000 -

These dockets involve competing applications to study the feasibility of a hydroelectric project to be located at the US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Saylorville Reservoir in Polk County, Iowa. The projects would use the same water resource, i.e., surplus water released by the Corps from the Saylorville reservoir. On October 10, 2013, the Commission announced a filing priority drawing for the applications after determining that as neither of the applicants’ plans is better adapted than the other to develop, conserve and utilize in the public interest the water resources at issue, a drawing is appropriate to break the tie. Prior to the announcement, Western Minnesota Municipal Power Agency filed a motion to withdraw from the drawing claiming filing priority should not be an issue under the circumstances. On October 23, 2013, the Commission issued a notice stating that the drawing determined FFP Qualified Hydro 14, LLC to be the priority applicant. Agenda item H-1 may be an order on the applications.
