Lewis County Commission Considers Hydroelectric Power Project

Posted: Updated:

The Lewis County Commission is looking ahead to a project that will bring hydroelectric power to the county.

Commissioners received information from Mahoning Hydropower, expressing interest in a hydroelectric power plant at the Stonewall Dam.

Commissioner Pat Boyle said the dam was originally designed with hydropower in mind, and having it there could be a great benefit to the county.

"If that comes to fruition, it'd be great. Needless to say, if they can sell power to the area and produce electricity it'd be fantastic," Boyle said.

The Commission also accepted a new Governor's Community Partnership Grant to help with upgrades to the playground at the Ireland Community Center.
