H.R.219 – Swan Lake Hydroelectric Project Boundary Correction Act


H.R. 219 directs the Department of the Interior to conduct a survey of a 26-acre parcel of land within the boundary of the Swan Lake Hydroelectric Project in Alaska.

The bill requires the federal government to convey the parcel to the state of Alaska. The parcel is not currently generating any receipts for the Forest Service and it is not expected to do so in the future.

    The Swan Lake Hydroelectric Project is a remote facility located approximately 22 air miles northeast of Ketchikan, Alaska. The facility is operated by the Southeast Alaska Power Agency (SEAPA), a regional Joint Action Agency of the State of Alaska. The Project was initiated by the State of Alaska in 1980 and placed into service in 1984.
