On October 16, FERC revoked the license for East Juliette hydroelectric project on the Ocmulgee River in Georgia due to its repeated failure to construct fish passage facilities as required by its 1985 license.
After years of directly violating license articles, failing to submit plans or reports on time or at all, not installing fish passage, failing to provide a minimum flow, and generating power despite direct orders from FERC to cease operation, the Commission has threatened to revoke the License for the Harvell project on Virginia's Appomattox River.
