ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has filed to intervene in the relicensing of the hydropower facility at the Conowingo Dam.

The foundation said Tuesday that it will urge a solution to the effects the dam has on water quality and habitat.

The Conowingo Project on the Susquehanna River is owned by Exelon Corp. The license for the project expires in September 2014.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission licenses the dam.

The Bay Foundation says Exelon, Pennsylvania and Maryland must meet the requirements of the Clean Water Act to ensure the Bay and local waters are protected.
