In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) regulations, 18 CFR Part 380, the Office of Energy Projects staff (staff) reviewed the application for amendment of project license for the California Aqueduct Project, located on Piru Creek in California and prepared a draft environmental assessment (draft EA) for the project. In this draft EA, staff analyzes the potential environmental effects of the proposed minimum flow modification and concludes that amending the license as proposed with staff-additional measures would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the draft EA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room, or it may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “e-Library” link.
