The CorvidEYE

Another good dam documentary!


Sitka’s Blue Lake hydro expansion project has gotten a public relations makeover from a local filmmaker.

Hannah Guggenheim recently released a four-and-a-half minute documentary about the project called “Energy Independence for our Future.”

The film is narrated by former city administrator John Stein.

The public will have two opportunities in the near future to learn first hand about the $142-million project. Thursday May 9 at 5:30 PM in Harrigan Centennial Hall, consulting engineer Paul Carlson will give a slide show on the project.

A public tour will be offered Sunday May 19, leaving on buses from Harrigan Centennial Hall at 1 PM. Reserve a seat on the tour.
