Columbia, SC, June 10 - South Carolina Electric & Gas will conduct two public meetings June 16 to gather comments regarding the relicensing of Saluda Hydroelectric Project, which includes Lake Murray. Saluda Hydro's current license expires in 2010.
While SCE&G will manage the process, state and federal resource agencies, home owners groups, environmental and recreational groups will play very significant roles in the relicensing of the project.
The quarterly public meetings are designed to increase public involvement for identifying issues and alternatives.
The June 16 meetings will be held at Saluda Shoals Park, 5605 Old Bush River Road. The first session will run from 10 a.m. until noon. The evening session is scheduled from 7 until 9 p.m.
