TOLEDO BEND, La. (AP) - The expiration of licenses for the authorities that run the Toledo Bend reservoir is almost a year away. But the renewal process has begun.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission licenses the Sabine River Authorities in Louisiana and Texas to operate Toledo Bend because of the reservoir's hydropower generation.
The Times of Shreveport reports that extensive studies have been conducted over the past four years related to any concerns that should be addressed before the license is renewed. The public will get to weigh in on those concerns during the coming year.
