VALLEY CITY, N.D. – Valley City is planning to study two sites on the Sheyenne River for a possible hydroelectric power plant.
The sites are the Old Mill Dam and the Baldhill Dam on Lake Ashtabula, 12 miles northwest of the city.
Roger Bischoff is the Barnes County director of the Garrison Diversion Conservancy District. He says hydroelectric power could be a low-cost, environmentally sound energy source.
The city has approved the idea of finding an engineering firm to conduct the study and has asked the conservancy district to pay for it. Commissioner Steve Ondracek says it’s “just in the talking stage now.”
