Abstract : The principle planning objective was the development of a renewable resource energy production facility for Cagles Mill Lake and the surrounding study area to be of benefit for a 100-year period of analysis. All plans studied are economically infeasible due primarily to the cost of the conveyance system needed to deliver the water to the powerhouse. The maximum capability of a house power unit in the center gate opening of the control tower is almost 250 KW. It is recommended that the study of the feasibility of small scale hydropower at Cagles Mill Lake, Indiana be terminated. It is recommended that a small station power unit, having an installed capacity of about 250 KW, be designed and installed in the existing tower at the earliest possible date to provide power for project facilities.
