Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Waterpower '85


The 2. 8 MW Mt. Elbert Conduit Hydropower Project, developed by STS Energenics Ltd. Inc. , will begin operation mid-October, 1985. The powerhouse has been constructed and the turbine and generator installed. The construction crew is now completing the final installation of the penstock which will connect the outlet works of the dam to the power plant. The project is being completed on schedule - a feat directly attributable to the early establishment of a good working relationship with the Bureau of Reclamation. This paper discusses some of the working arrangements between STS Energenics and the Bureau which allowed the project to be successfully developed.
