Rollinsford Hydroelectric Project

On behalf of the Town of Rollinsford, New Hampshire, Consolidated Hydro New Hampshire, LLC (CHNH) is preparing to relicense the Rollinsford Hydroelectric Project (Project) with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission). CHNH, a subsidiary of Enel Green Power North America (EGPNA), operates and manages the Project under a lease agreement with the Town of Rollinsford. The Project (FERC No. 3777) is located on the Salmon Falls River, which establishes the border between the States of New Hampshire (NH) and Maine (ME), in Strafford County, NH and York County, ME. The FERC license expires on August 31, 2021.

In accordance with the Commission’s regulations, on August 31, 2016, the Town of Rollinsford commenced the relicensing process by filing its Notice of Intent (NOI) to file an application for license and Pre- Application Document (PAD) for the Project. Also, pursuant to the Commission’s regulations, the Town of Rollinsford requested the Commission’s approval to use the Traditional Licensing Process (TLP) for this Project.

The purpose of this email is to distribute copies of those documents to potentially interested federal and state resource agencies, Indian tribes, non-governmental organizations, and members of the public.  A copy of the NOI, PAD, and TLP request is available for download at the FERC website using the following FERC eLibrary link: http://elibrary.FERC.gov/idmws/file_list.asp?accession_num=20160831-5132.

Paper copies are available upon request, please contact Kirk Smith at ksmith@gomezandsullivan.com or 603-428-4960.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC PRESENTATION

SELECT BOARD

TOWN OF ROLLINSFORD

Town Hall

MS4 Permit and Stormwater Subdivision Regulations

 

The Town of Rollinsford holds an MS4 permit from the US Environmental Protection Agency  which constrains the town to manage stormwater runoff in responsible ways so as not to further impair local waterways such as the Salmon Falls River, Rollins Brook, and Fresh Creek.

 

The town received a grant from the Piscataqua Regions Estuary Partnership (PREP) to review and develop stormwater-related regulations to be included with the town’s subdivision regulations.   Liz Durfee, a planner with the Strafford Regional Planning Commission, serves as project manager of the grant and she will provide an overview of the committee’s work.
The Planning Board will be formally reviewing the proposed stormwater regulations and will hold a public hearing on these changes in the ensuing months.   This meeting is an information presentation of the topic.
