License terminated for Marseilles project on Illinois River


FERC issued an order on April 17, 2008 terminating the license for the 4.75 MW Marseilles Hydroelectric project that would have been built at the Marseilles Dam owned by the US Army Corps or Engineers. The license required Marseilles Hydropower LLC to start construction for the project within the first two years of issuance of license. However, Marseilles Hydropower failed to do so even after the end of extension of another two years.
