Barber Dam Relicensing

Welcome to the Barber Dam Relicensing! This website has been developed to provide a central clearinghouse for activities related to the relicensing activities for the Barber Dam Hydroelectric Project. This website will be used to provide updates on the Project, announce upcoming meetings and events, and will act as a repository for documents related to the relicensing effort.

Fulcrum, LLC and Ada County, Idaho are co-licensees for the Project and are preparing to relicense the Project with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The current FERC operating license expires in November 2023.

Fulcrum and Ada County have filed a Notice of Intent (NOI) and Pre-Application Document (PAD) to relicense the existing 3.7-megawatt (MW) Project, generally consisting of: (1) a 1,100-foot-long embankment dam ranging in height from 39 feet to about 32 feet; (2) a 400-footlong, 25-foot-high concrete-capped timber crib spillway section; (3) a 75-acre impoundment with negligible storage capacity; (4) a powerhouse measuring 65 by 92.5 feet situated between the embankment and spillway sections and containing two 1.85-MW turbine/generator units; (5) 60 feet of underground transmission leading to a step up transformer; and (6) appurtenant facilities.
