Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number p-2082: On February 25, 2004, PacifiCorp filed an application with the Commission for a new license for the 151-megawatt (MW) Klamath Project, FERC No. 2082, located principally on the Klamath River in Klamath County, Oregon and Siskiyou County, California, in between Klamath Falls, Oregon and Yreka, California. The existing project occupies 219 acres of lands of the United States, which are administered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR). The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA),2 the Commission's regulations, and other applicable laws require that we independently evaluate the environmental effects of licensing the project as proposed, and also consider reasonable alternatives to the proposed action. The Commission staff intends to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) that describes and evaluates the probable effects, including an assessment of the site-specific and cumulative effects, if any, of the proposed action and alternatives. The EIS preparation is supported by a scoping process to ensure the identification and analysis of all pertinent issues.
