PUD Approves Rock Island Dam Modernization

Chelan PUD Commissioners held a special end of year meeting Friday to approve updated plans for modernization of 4 turbines at Rock Island Dam. In a PUD press release, General Manager Steve Wright said the board approved an offer from the low bidder, Andritz Hydro Corp. of North Carolina that will save the district’s rate payer’s $1.24 million in discounts The contractor will also complete the work six months earlier than previous estimates. The time frame will help the PUD meet guidelines under its Habitat Conservation Plan.
