ENOSBURG FALLS, Vt. (AP) - Officials in a Vermont village are moving forward with a phased approach to a hydro renovation project.

The St. Albans Messenger reports Enosburg Falls‘ Board of Trustees approved appropriating $107,000 from the village electric department for the project at its Oct. 4 meeting.

The project involving engineering firm H.L Turner Group and Pennsylvania-based manufacturer Kingsbury Inc. aims to upgrade the village’s four-blade turbine runner at its hydroelectric facilities.

The companies proposed a phased approach at a September meeting with the board due to “too many unknowns.” The first phase would begin with an investigation of the hydro facilities to determine the condition of their generators.

A start date for the project hasn’t been determined. Kingsbury told the board they could begin work as early as Nov. 1.
