Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number p-2069: The Childs-Irving Hydroelectric Facilities are located primarily along Fossil Creek in central Arizona and comprise two distinct flume systems and two hydroelectric gernerating plants with other related components. The facilities were built in two stages: Childs in 1908-1909 and Irving in 1915-1916. These facilities have been recognized for their simple design and efficient means for generating and transmitting power. They are notable for their continuing operation and integrity. Replacement of parts has been, for the most part, consistent in styles with older components, thereby retaining the historical character of the system.
