In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations (18 CFR part 380), the Office of Energy Projects has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) regarding Orange Cove Irrigation District's and Friant Power Authority's request for a capacity-related amendment of the license for the Fishwater Release Hydroelectric Project. The project is located at the Bureau of Reclamation's Friant Dam on the San Joaquin River in Fresno County, California. This EA concludes that the proposed action would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
