In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission or FERC) regulations (18 CFR part 380), the Commission staff reviewed an application for amendment to the approved recreation plan for the Feather River Project (FERC No. 2100) and prepared a draft environmental assessment (EA) on the application. The project is located on the Feather River in Butte County, California, near the city of Oroville.
Specifically, the project licensee, the California Department of Water Resources, has requested that the Commission amend the approved recreation plan for the project to allow shared use of certain recreation trails within the project boundaries. In the EA, the Commission staff analyzes the probable environmental effects of the proposed amendment and concludes that the proposal should not be approved.
