Sunset Falls Project on SF Skykomish Cancelled (WA)

04/13/2018 - by Thomas O’Keefe

Earlier this week the Snohomish County PUD Board of Commissioners directed their staff to cease the effort to pursue a federal license for the Sunset Falls hydropower project on Washington’s South Fork Skykomish River. For the past decade, American Whitewater has been directly engaged in the dialogue about the Sunset Falls Project, including settlement discussions over the last two years with the PUD, agencies and tribes. American Whitewater is pleased with the PUD's decision to emphasize cost-effective conservation and alternative renewable energy resources as alternatives to developing a hydropower project at Sunset Falls.
