Harrington Park, New Jersey (June 18, 2014) – The Low Impact Hydropower Institute is pleased to announce it that the Mahoning Creek Hydroelectric Project (FERC No. 12555, LIHI Certificate No. 114) has been determined by the Governing Board of the Low Impact Hydropower Institute (LIHI) to meet the requirements of the Low Impact Hydropower Certification Program.
The Mahoning Creek certification achieves LIHI’s dual goals of energy and environmental benefits, with an estimated annual average generation of 20 GWh of new, clean and renewable electricity, plus these environmental enhancements:
• improved instream flows and aquatic habitat in the 22-mile reach of Mahoning Creek, between the new powerhouse and the Creek’s confluence with the Allegheny River, and
• enhancement of water quality in the 950-ft-long stilling basin between the dam and the powerhouse.
