The proposed project would be located at the existing Cedar Lake Dam, on the Cedar River, within the City of Nashua, Chickasaw County, Iowa.
The proposed project would consist of: the existing 15.5-foot-high concrete gravity Cedar Lake Dam with a 258-foot-long concrete gated spillway section, and a 700- foot-long earth embankment section that impounds a 405-acre reservoir (Cedar Lake); an existing 51-foot-wide concrete intake structure connected to the existing powerhouse that would contain four new turbine generating units with a total installed capacity of 800 kW; a tailrace; and a new 75-foot-long, 13.8-kilovolt (kV) overhead transmission line.
