PETERSBURG-AK The company that wants to build a large hydroelectric plant in Thomas Bay near Petersburg met with local residents and officials again last week. Cascade Creek LLC’s controversial proposal has drawn extensive criticism from the general public as well as from state and federal agencies. That includes the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission or FERC, which threatened to end the current licensing process earlier this spring after citing numerous problems with the company’s draft application. During the latest meeting in Petersburg, a Cascade representative gave another update in the face of on-going concerns.
