An unexpected issue at the Rocky River Pumped Hydro Station has delayed the annual planned drawdown of Candlewood Lake. Unfortunately, what would normally be a very short-term maintenance repair has stretched into a much longer outage due to supply chain delays and Covid-related staffing shortages with our vendors. We expect the station to be repaired and operational within the next week (potentially sooner) and will commence drawing the lake down as soon as the station is functional.
