The City of Denton, Texas, the license holder for this project, surrendered its license in October 2011 which FERC approved in December 2013. The license for the project which would have been located on the Ray Roberts Dam  owned by the Army Corps of Engineers had been issued in 1989.

In its surrender application, the City of Denton stated that it decided to withdraw from the power generation business because it is more economical and operationally less complex to purchase its power needs rather than operate the project to generate power. While it had decided to sell the project, the sale never happened following which the City decided to surrender its license.
