Our May 2016 Chapter Meeting:
Holyoke Gas & Electric, Wednesday May 25th @ 4:45pm.
They normally close at 5pm, but has agreed to stay longer to give us a tour.
1 Bridge Street, Holyoke, MA
SBE Chapter 14 has arranged for a tour of the Holyoke Gas & Electric’s Hadley Falls hydroelectric facility on the Connecticut River. We also have a tour of the Robert E. Barrett Fishway (fishlift) while it is operation during the Atlantic Salmon migration (shad and lamprey too).
We will be meeting in the parking lot and then go in for the tour. I ask that we meet at 4:45pm so we can promptly go in at 5pm.
There will be no dinner provided, but if folks want to eat together after the tour, we can go to a local restaurant.
Below is a link to their website for the hydro electric plant:
And a link about the fishlift:
Traveling north or south on Rt. 91:
Take exit 17 (Rte. 141 Holyoke Center/South Hadley) and follow signs to Rte. 141 East towards Holyoke. Stay on Rte. 141, bearing right at the second set of lights. Continue on Rte. 141 for six more lights, turning left at the 6th onto Main Street (Rte. 116N which becomes Canal St). Follow Rt. 116N to the left toward South Hadley. Turn left at the fishway sign just before the South Hadley Falls Bridge.
This will be a very educational and interesting tour.
