Look at the terrible condition of the current water let down behind the dams along the Boardman. Are these poeple nuts?
Also, the hydro-electric power that could (and should) come from those, if operated by real poeple, would be an very fine addition to Light and Power's utility mix. Just they let them go into disrepair for years.
Was there a motive, is there something underlying here? No doubt heavy lobbying by a couple of local people in well healed fishing groups with some sort of odd idea about restoring the river to 160 years ago.
And especially the power companies are behind this. Nothing more than that. They don't want anyone genreating power they can't control. TC Light and Power is a small fish in the DTE, Consumers Energy relm. this was such a fixed commitee from outset. Who's looking into this?
