UPDATE ON BOYCE HYDRO CEASE GENERATION ORDER
​Nov. 22, 12017

Boyce Hydro has been ordered by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to stop generating electricity at the Edenville Dam, effective Nov. 27, 2017. Boyce is licensed by FERC to operate the dam and is required to comply with that license.  

The immediate concern for Wixom lake property owners and users is the lake level. This FERC order should have no effect on recreational use of the lake. The FERC order specifically requires Boyce to maintain the lake at normal seasonal levels. Please keep an eye on lake levels and alert us via the “Contact us” button above if you see major deviations from normal lake levels. Keep in mind that the lake should be lowered approx. 2.5' (two and one half feet) to the normal winter level around December 15.

The longer-term concern is operation and maintenance of the dam. Due to the dam's design, operators need to monitor lake level and then open or close spillway gates to maintain the level within limits set by Boyce's license. As noted in the order, the spillways need significant maintenance, particularly the Tobacco River side spillways.  

As long as the “cease generation” order is in effect, Boyce will derive no income from the Edenville Dam, but will continue to incur expenses. Obviously, this is not a workable long-term situation. It is much too soon to know what will happen and speculation is pointless. FERC is well-aware of the situation and our State and Federal Congressional representatives have been contacted. The resolution is FERC's responsibility and will depend on how Boyce cooperates with FERC in the future. Wixom Lake Association will continue to monitor the situation and share relevant information via this web site.
EDENVILLE DAM CEASE GENERATION ORDER UPDATE 
DEC 8, 2017

Boyce Hydro Power, LLC (Boyce) has filed an “Emergency Motion for Stay Pending Rehearing, Request for Approval of Plan to Fund the Tobacco Auxiliary Spillway, and Request for Extensions of Time”. The motion for “Stay” asks that Boyce be allowed to continue generating power at Edenville until FERC conducts a rehearing and rules whether the cease generation order should be enforced or rescinded.  

The Motion also offers a method to fund construction of the Tobacco Auxiliary Spillway and proposes a new schedule for delivery of construction and maintenance plans and schedules for the Edenville Dam.
