Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The United States Department of the Interior (DOI), as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) lead agency, and the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG), as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) lead agency, along with their Cooperating Agencies and environmental consultants, intend to develop an Environmental Impact Statement/ Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the "Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KHSA) and Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) Including the Secretarial Determination on Whether to Remove Four Dams on the Klamath River in California and Oregon" (Klamath EIS/EIR). The EIS/EIR will evaluate the environmental and social effects of a set of alternatives that may include removing all or portions of four dams on the Klamath River to pass flows and help restore salmonid fisheries. As part of the environmental review process, these agencies held public scoping meetings to obtain public and stakeholder input and to comply with environmental regulations. This Scoping Report documents the scoping process that occurred for the Klamath EIS/EIR, including the public scoping meetings that were held to solicit public comments. This report also provides a summary of all comments received by August 27th, 2010.
