September 2006

GRDA receives a new 30-year license to operate the Markham Ferry Project (Robert S. Kerr Dam and Lake Hudson) from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. To complete the relicensing efforts, bald eagle protection, threatened and endangered species management, water quality, identification and management of historic property and a recreation management plan were some of the subjects addressed by GRDA. The new license replaced the original license, issued in 1955.
