On October 2, 2017, Nevada Hydro Inc. filed an application requesting authorization to construct and operate the Lake Elsinore Advanced Pumped Storage Project. The project would be located on Lake Elsinore and San Juan Creek near the town of Lake Elsinore in Riverside and San Diego Counties, California. The project would occupy about 845 acres of federal land administered by the U.S. Forest Service.

The application will be processed according to the following revised schedule.

Final Environmental Impact Statement: December 10, 2021

In addition, in accordance with Title 41 of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, enacted on December 4, 2015, agencies are to publish completion dates for all federal environmental reviews and authorizations.
