Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number p-696: Communications with stakeholders during the relicensing process indicated that conditions included in the new license would render the project uneconomic. PacifiCorp, state and federal agencies and non-governmental organizations involved in this proceeding began discussions regarding project decommissioning in early 2001.

The FERC responded on June 10 that, in order to withdraw its relicense application, PacfiCorp must tint file an application to surrender the license.
