Abstract

The Glyn Rhonwy Pumped Storage scheme is a proposed hydroelectric facility within Glyn Rhonwy Quarry, a disused slate quarry north-west of Llanberis, Gwynedd. The scheme requires the creation of two large water reservoirs utilising the existing quarries Q1 (SH5595060552) and Q6 (SH5665060855) which will be sealed and dammed to enable increase retention capacity. Water for the scheme will be abstracted from the adjacent Llyn Padarn, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI hereafter) to fill the upper reservoir. Both Q1 and Q6 currently hold permanent water and it is understood this may require release to Llyn Padarn during the construction phase and once operational, Llyn Padarn could also receive water from the scheme during periods of overflow.
