We, the undersigned, believe that Homer Electric Association’s proposal to dam Grant Lake will adversely affect the Kenai River watershed by industrializing this popular local tributary. 

The Kenai River is beloved by many and widely known to be one of the most productive salmon rivers in the world. The area is also rich in wildlife, recreational opportunities, and a unique way of life.

The costs of losing fish habitat in one of Alaska’s favorite and most productive local watersheds is too high of a price to pay for the insignificant amount of power which will be generated as a result of this project.  The Kenai River system supports 34 species of anadromous and resident fish.

For these reasons I oppose any dams and/or roads on Grant Lake and Falls Creek or any other tributary of the Kenai River.  I support the NO ACTION ALTERNATIVE which would prevent a hydropower license from being issued for the proposed Grant Lake hydroelectric project.
