The Florida Water Conservancy District (District), the entity responsible for the operation of the dam and for repayment of the costs, had been interested in the hydropower potential of the dam. The District submitted a request to the Colorado Water Resources and Power Development Authority to fund a feasibility study. The Authority agreed to fund a study to investigate the power plant and the needed repairs to the outlet gates of the dam. Concurrent installation of the power plant and rehabilitation of the gates allow for an improved construction schedule. This paper describes the results of the study.
