Peabody backs out of reservoir project 26.8.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Peabody Energy has backed away from plans to build the 400-acre Trout Creek Reservoir about 15 miles southwest of Steamboat Springs. Information that Peabody was working on the reservoir project first surfaced in 2012, when a memo was sent to the Upper Yampa Water Conservancy. Because the plan included a proposed hydroelectric dam that would generate 125 kilowatts of electricity, Peabody was seeking approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC. On Tuesday, FERC released a letter stating they were terminating the licensing process because Peabody had missed deadlines. In 2015, because of dwindling demand for coal, Peabody asked for a two-year extension in the permitting process so the company could conserve cash and reduce debt. In April, Peabody declared bankruptcy. Some environmentalist declared a victory when FERC terminated the licensing process. "This is good news for Trout Creek, the Yampa River and the entire Colorado River basin,” Save The Colorado's Gary Wockner said in a news ...
