A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Cost of rules may kill Albany hydro

Written March 5th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Albany’s small hydropower plant, restored in 2009 at a cost of about $2.2 million, was never going to justify the investment in terms of money. Now, rising costs due to more federal regulation are causing the city staff to consider shutting the operation down.


City: Canal ‘paths’ still possible

Written September 22nd, 2014 by Hasso Hering
