Power on Delaware and Lehigh Canals

NEHC is in the process of assessing the feasibility of three projects proposed to reuse the 1830s coal canals situated in the Delaware & Lehigh Valley within the D&L National Historic Corridor. The goal of these assessments is to develop hydroelectric generation systems with high utilization capacities on these existing, historic canals while offering long-term canal stability and sustaining existing recreational activities.
