Hydropower possibilities for Fishkill Creek?

HYDROPOWER IN UNDEVELOPED STREAM REACHES. The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Water Power Technologies Office issued a request for information regarding challenges and opportunities associated with hydropower development in undeveloped stream-reaches (81 FR 78795). The office is also seeking input on the focus and structure of a potential funding opportunity to support research and development of advanced and/or non-traditional transformative hydropower technologies and project designs capable of avoiding or minimizing environmental and social effects of new hydropower development in undeveloped stream-reaches of the United States. Responses are due 16 DEC 16.

I saw this news item in my office.  Perhaps someone in Beacon can get the ball rolling to capture the seemingly viable hydropower capabilities of Fishkill Creek.  The issues included with the last sentence appear to be non-existent since the creek was formerly used for hydropower, and some of the infrastructure is already present.
