Bureau of Reclamation seeks public review on hydroelectric project in Grass Valley, California

Published 31 August 2017

The US Bureau of Reclamation is seeking an Environmental Assessment for a project proposed by Nevada Irrigation District to construct and to operate hydroelectric project near Loma Rica Water Treatment plant near Grass Valley, California.

Reclamation proposes to provide NID $285,000 through a 2014 WaterSMART Water Energy and Efficiency Grant to help fund the $3.8 million project.

The concrete building would enclose a turbine and generator capable of producing up to 1.4 megawatts and would allow NID to maximize hydropower potential, help offset electrical costs within the system and provide a potential source of income for NID. The facility would take advantage of existing piping and flow that was constructed for the Banner Cascade Pipeline project completed in 2012.
