Juneau Hydropower Inc. has asked the state for water rights needed for the Sweetheart Lake Hydroelectric Project.
The project, which expects to generate 19.8 megawatts from a dam at Lower Sweetheart Lake southeast of Juneau, is required to obtain a permit because it will use state waters.
Public comments are invited on the water rights application. Email firstname.lastname@example.org before 5 p.m. Dec. 21.
Anyone who feels the public interest would be affected by the water use is invited to write.
