Ownership and operation

Owner City of Traverse City

The licensee of the project decided that the project is not economically feasible for relicensing. Through a settlement of which HRC/MHRC was a part, the licensee decided to decommission the project, potentially opening the door for dam removal. For relicensing, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) wanted the licensee to install emergency spillways at Brown Bridge dam.

See the Boardman River license summary for more information.
