Pumped Storage Issue Déjà vu For Reader

Dear Editor,

At the risk of possibly being mistaken for Yogi Berra, I have to say It's like déjà vu all over again!

The Pumped Storage Plant debate feels like a bad tennis match to me. Mr. Mikkelsen answers your readers' concerns with facts, science, engineering, and common sense, after which a resident or two manufactures another list of perceived grievances for him to tackle. Seriously? Give me an example of a facility of this kind on an active military base? What if you bury the pumps - but I can still hear them? I'll leave those ones and the rest of the science for Mr. Mikkelsen to tackle. I'd like to raise a different concern that I don't feel has been addressed, or if it has I certainly missed it.
