In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for license for the Oroville Facilities (FERC No. 2100), located on the Feather River in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Butte County, California, and has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (final EIS) for the project. The existing project occupies 1,620 acres of Federal lands managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service within the Plumas and Lassen National Forests and 4,620 acres managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
In the final EIS, staff evaluates the applicant's proposal and alternatives for relicensing the Oroville Facilities. The final EIS documents the views of governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, affected Indian tribes, the public, the license applicant, and Commission staff.
The final EIS will be part of the record from which the Commission will make its decision.
Copies of the final EIS are available for review in the Commission's Public Reference Branch, Room 2A, located at 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. The final EIS also may be viewed on the Internet at http://www.ferc.gov under the eLibrary link. Enter the docket number (P-2100) to access the document.
