NOTICE OF PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD AND MEETINGS Goldendale Pumped Storage Energy Project Scoping for an Environmental Impact Statement The Department of Ecology (Ecology) invites you to comment on the scope of an environmental review of the possible impacts of a proposed pumped storage energy project along the Columbia River near Goldendale, WA. Ecology is seeking comments on what should be included in the study, project alternatives and possible mitigation to reduce project impacts. FFP Project 101, LLC proposes to develop the Goldendale Pumped Storage energy project - an off-stream, closed-looped water storage system that will release water from an upper reservoir downhill to a lower reservoir to create renewable energy. The hydropower project would generate about 1,200 megawatts of electricity to be integrated into the existing power grid, using existing infrastructure from the nearby John Day dam. The project would use power already generated by wind and solar-energy projects for operations. Energy produced would serve markets in the Pacific Northwest. Visit Ecologys website at https://ecology.wa.gov/goldendale-energy-SEPA for the SEPA checklist and other project information. Due to COVID-19, documents related to this site will not be available at libraries and other locations.
