Rocky River Hydroelectric Station
New Milford, CT
BAC removed the existing 15' diameter wood stave penstock (that Blakeslee installed 50 years ago) at the Rocky River Hydroelectric Station in New Milford CT and replaced it with a 10' ID fiberglass penstock with steel connections to existing pipe. The existing steel pipe is 15' feet in diameter. The new fiberglass penstock is 870 feet long. A new wetland area was established to replace the wet area under the existing leaking wood pipe.
