The Army Corps of Engineers has proposed modifications to the Libby Dam in Montana to increase its generating capacity. The increased capacity would not produce more electricity than the existing facility, but would help meet high-demand daytime needs.

Montana's Libby Dam Project: More Study Needed Before Adding Generators And A Reregulating Dam The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has not shown that its proposed project to add more generators to the Libby Dam and a reregula-ting dam downstream is economically justi-fied or the best alternative for meeting.

In our recent report “Montana’s Libby Dam Project: More Study Needed Before Adding Generators And A l®ulating Dam” (EMD, Nov. 20, ) we recommended the Corps not proceed with the Libby Project until a new benefit-cost study using proper methodologywas performed, including an.

in addition, the letter raises a question on the use of combustion turbines as a generating alternative to the expanded Libby Dam project for supplying peaking power in the PacificNorthwest.

Dams impact salmon and steelhead in a number of ways, from inundating spawning areas to changing historic river flow patterns and raising water temperatures. Dams block passage of salmon and steelhead between spawning and rearing habitat and the Pacific Ocean.

Where fish passage is not provided the blockage is permanent. A new degree of freedom in water management is presented here. This is obtained by displacing water, and in this paper is conceptually explained by two methods: using an excavated cavern as a.

The Army Corps did not believe construction should be a federal project and saw low demand for electricity.

Reclamation argued energy demand would rise by the time the dam was complete.
