On February 13th, Denali Citizens Council submitted comments to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on an application for a Preliminary Permit to construct a hyrdroelectric project on Bruskasna Creek, a tributary of the Nenana River upstream from the first bridge across the Nenana north of Cantwell. This area is popular with area boaters and fishermen.
The Preliminary Permit would authorize a variety of studies on economic, environmental and physical impacts of this proposed project. Studies are expected to take up to three years.
