On September 30, 2004, the Commission staff mailed the Stanislaus River Projects Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to the Environmental Protection Agency, resource and land management agencies, and interested organizations and individuals.

The DEIS was noticed in the Federal Register on October 8, 2004, and comments are due December 7, 2004. The DEIS evaluates the environmental consequences of the construction, operation, and maintenance of the Stanislaus River Projects in California. The DEIS also evaluates the environmental effects of implementing the applicant's proposals, agency and NGO recommendations, staff's recommendations, and the no-action alternative. All of the Beardsley/Donnells Project, most of the Spring Gap-Stanislaus Project, and all of the Donnell-Curtis Transmission Line Project are located within the Stanislaus National Forest.

Two public meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, November 16, 2004, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (PST) and 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (PST) at the Best Western Sonora Oaks Conference Center, 19551 Hess Ave, Sonora, CA 95370. At these meetings, resource agency personnel and other interested persons will have the opportunity to provide oral and written comments and recommendations regarding the DEIS for the Commission's public record. These meetings will be recorded by an official stenographer.
