The Candlewood Lake Authority is concerned with what the group says is unilateral action taken by FirstLight Power Resources on the Nuisance Plant Monitoring Plan.
The CLA wrote to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission expressing disappointment that FirstLight hired a new consulting firm to conduct the FERC-mandated monitoring, without the consultant being approved by a FERC committee. Approval is required by FERC. Committee members also were not consulted and did not have a chance to review the modified scope and survey methodology.
The former consultant provided the monitoring for about 10 years. The CLA relies on the consistent data, program scope and methodology to our nuisance plant management practices, including the successful Sterile Grass Carp Program.
CLA officials say they met with FirstLight to come to a resolution, but none was reached.
