Underground Hydro-Power Project: Developers share details of their multi-million dollar plan to generate hydro-power in an abandoned iron mine in Essex County. If they win federal approval, construction on the project would begin in about 3 years and could be operating within 5 or 6 years. Mineville, Moriah and surrounding communities would not receive any of the power generated, but the privately funded 260-million dollar project would pump what the developers and town officials call a “significant” amount of tax revenue into the local economy. The project would hire as many as 200 workers for the construction phase over 2 years, and then up to 15 permanent full-time jobs. Watch the story by clicking here.
