On September 10, 2004, the Commission staff delivered the Upper North Fork Feather River Project Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to the Environmental Protection Agency and mailed it to resource and land management agencies, interested organizations, and individuals.
The DEIS was noticed in the Federal Register on September 17, 2004 (69 FR 56054) and comments are due November 1, 2004. The DEIS evaluates the environmental consequences of the issuance of a new license for the continued operation and maintenance of the Upper North Fork Feather River Project, located in Plumas County, California. The project occupies 1,500 acres of land administered by the Forest Supervisors of the Lassen and Plumas National Forests. It also evaluates the environmental effects of implementing the licensee's proposals, agency and NGO recommendations, staff's recommendations, and the no-action alternative.
Two public meetings, which will be recorded by an official stenographer, are scheduled as follows.
Date: Tuesday, October 19, 2004.
