The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is reviewing the application for a new license for the El Dorado Project (FERC No. 184), which was filed on February 22, 2000. The El Dorado Project, licensed to the El Dorado Irrigation District (EID), is located on the South Fork American River, in El Dorado, Alpine, and Amador Counties, California. The project occupies lands of the Eldorado National Forest.
The EID, several state and federal agencies, and several non-governmental agencies have asked the Commission for time to work collaboratively with a facilitator to resolve certain issues relevant to this proceeding. This meeting is part of that collaborative process. There will be a 3-hour plenary meeting to discuss matters of general interest, followed by a joint meeting of the aquatics/hydrology workgroup and the recreation/socioeconomics/visual resources workgroup. The workgroup meeting will focus on further defining interests and the development of strategies to meet objectives. We invite the participation of all interested governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, and the general public in this meeting.
The meeting will be held on Monday, January 14 and Tuesday, January 15, 2002, from 9am until 4pm in the Sacramento Marriott, located at 11211 Point East Drive, Rancho Cordova, California.
