Coalition wants more study on water releases

The Wet The Dries Coalition wants a study to be done on the economic impact of increased water releases from Hawks Nest Dam. The alliance is made up of West Virginia Professional River Outfitters, the New River Clean Water Alliance, Plateau Action Network and the Hydropower Reform Coalition, and says increasing dam releases would create more than 5 miles of new whitewater in Fayette County. The dam's license is coming up for review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
