Hydroelectric Dam saught for Beltzville Lake

Lehighton Borough Council will apply for $16 million in interest-free Clean Renewable Energy bonds to build a hydroelectric plant at Beltzville Dam that could eventually lower costs for the borough's 3,000 electric customers.

The plant would generate 2.9 megawatts a day, about a third of the borough's energy needs, said Borough Manager John Hanosek.
