Non-profit withdraws violation complaint against FirstLight Connecticut Housatonic

A non-profit organization has withdrawn an application of a violation complaint with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission against FirstLight Connecticut Housatonic.  American Whitewater alleged that due to actions taken by FirstLight, the public has been denied access to Housatonic River for recreational boating, specifically whitewater boating opportunity in the bypassed natural river channel at Bulls Bridge.  American Whitewater said at the time of the initial filing that the actions were taken deliberately and without sufficient justification in violation of the project License.   FirstLight says the decision to close access points was consistent with recommendations issued by the Connecticut Department of Public Health, to minimize the potential exposure of FirstLight’s workforce, FirstLight contractors, and the general public to COVID-19.
