The Release issued from FEMA over the weekend concerning the $50 million allocated for the Spencer Dam has been corrected and amended by the Nebraska Public Power District. The amendment clarifies that, contrary to the FEMA release, the dam will be demolished and decommissioned as originally planned by NPPD. Comments about the change are below: "In working with FEMA since the hydro was damaged, NPPD had provide FEMA with costs to rebuild the hydro unit which was part of the FEMA process, but at the same time NPPD let FEMA know that the plan was to demolish and decommission the unit. The initial release generally came across that the funds would go towards rebuilding the hydro. At the time of the destruction of the hydro, a an agreement was already in place to sell the hydro itself to a group of local NRDs. With the hydro destroyed the agreement is no longer in place. The plan is that now that federal funds are obligated, NPPD will begin putting together the costs and plans for the demolition and decommissioning of the hydro and will work with associated regulatory agencies on the approval process."
