The proposed Harrisburg Hydroelectric Project is a conventional 34.4-MW power facility located on the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The project will raise the river water level by approximately 12 feet and change the groundwater levels along the eight miles of reservoir created by the impoundment. Groundwater studies for the proposed project were undertaken to determine: the existing (pre-project) conditions, the conditions as they will exist (post-project) after the project is implemented, and the impacts of the post-project conditions and mitigation measures if required.
