Otter Creek Project, Otter Creek, Vermont

Hydropower license summaries

Otter Creek is approximately 100 miles long and flows northeasterly from the headwaters of Emerald Lake to its confluence with Lake Champlain. The Otter Creek watershed drains an area of 1,106 square miles and is located in the Champlain Valley, which is a sub-unit of the larger Lake Champlain Basin. The three facilities at the Otter Creek of the Otter Creek hydroelectric project were developed in the early twentieth century to provide power to the marble mills in Proctor, Middlebury, and Weybridge, Vermont. While the previous license was held by Vermont Marble Power, Green Mountain Power acquired the project in September 2012.
