On March 22, 2005, the Commission issued a notice of availability of the draft environmental assessment (DEA) evaluating the relicensing applications for the Borel Hydroelectric Project (P-382-026), located on the Kern River near the town of Bodfish in Kern County, California, and the Kern Canyon Hydroelectric Project (P-178-017), located on the Kern River, near the town of Bakersfield in Kern County, California. Comments were due within 45 days of the issuance date of the notice. Because some participants were not notified of the availability of the DEA, we are extending the comment date 15 days until May 20, 2005.
A copy of the DEA is on file with the Commission and is available for public inspection. The DEA is available for review at the Commission or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov, using the “eLibrary” link.
