The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced today that Central Rivers Power, licensee of the Theresa Hydroelectric Project (FERC No. 4486), is overseeing a gradual drawdown of the Indian River to allow for replacement of a hydraulically operated 17.5-foot-high spillway gate.

The drawdown will take place over several days to allow for the protection of aquatic life and will last approximately four months.
