LEWISTON, Idaho - The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has issued a preliminary permit to a New York company to examine building a two-dam water storage and hydroelectric project in northern Idaho.
The BPUS Generation Development LLC of Liverpool, N.Y., wants to build the project on Little Potlatch Creek near Juliaetta.
The permit issued late last year gives the company three years to explore the feasibility of its proposed project that would be located in Nez Perce and Latah counties.
The company is considering building two earthen dams on the small creek to create a 138-acre reservoir and a 105-acre reservoir.
The powerhouse would have a capacity to generate 1,340 megawatts and would be built underground between the two dams.
