On September 25, 2006, Commission staff delivered the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the relicensing of the Klamath Hydroelectric project 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 29, 2006 (71 FR 57503), with a comment deadline of November 24, 2006. The DEIS evaluates the environmental consequences of the issuance of a new license for the continued operation and maintenance of the Klamath Hydroelectric, located primarily on the Klamath River, in Klamath County, Oregon and Siskiyou County, California. The existing project occupies a total of 219 acres of land administered by the U.S. Bureaus of Land Management and Reclamation. It also evaluates the environmental effects of implementing the licensee's proposals, agency and NGO recommendations, staff's recommendations, and the no-action alternative.

On October 6, 2006, we noticed four public meetings to receive comments on the DEIS (71 FR 60,505), which will be recorded by an official stenographer, as follows.
