About this Collection
The 168-megawatt Don Pedro Project located on the Tuolumne River, in the Sierra Nevada foothills and the eastern edge of California's Central Valley, provides water storage for the irrigation of over 200,000 acres of farmland, for municipal and industrial use, as well as for retail electric service, among other purposes. The Turlock Irrigation and Modesto Irrigation Districts applied to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for relicensing to authorize their continued operation and maintenance of the Don Pedro Project, FERC No. 2299. The objectives, methods, and results of a Native American Traditional Cultural Properties Study (CR-02), implemented by the Districts as part of the relicensing process, are described in a report made available to the public.
