Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: Friends of Butte Creek (FBC), the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance (CSPA), Friends of the River (FOR), and American Whitewater (AW) (collectively, Conservation Groups) have reviewed the May 1, 2008, "Notice of Application Ready for Environmental Analysis and Soliciting Comments, and Recommendations, Final Terms and Conditions, and Prescriptions" (REA Notice) for the Pacific Gas and Electric Company's DeSabla - Centerville Hydroelectric Project, FERC Project No. 803 (Project). Conservation groups have also reviewed PG&E's Application for License for Project 803 (October, 2007) and a myriad of other documents on the FERC record in this proceeding and in earlier FERC proceedings relating to Project 803, including documents from the 1980 relicensing of the Project, the 1991 FERC- ordered license amendment, and correspondence and legal documents which were occasioned by substantial pre-spawn mortality of Spring-run Chinook salmon (SRCS) in project-affected reaches of Butte Creek in 2002 and 2003. In response to the REA Notice, Conservation Groups hereby offer the following suite of recommendations under Section 10(a) of the Federal Power Act, and hereby provide a series of comments regarding needs for the Commission's planned Environmental Assessment for the relicensing of Project 803, under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
