Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Received

Document Description
SMUD proposes to modify the operation of the project, as described and analyzed in the FEIS and Final CEQA Supplement, by amending Conditions 1.K. (Minimum Instream Flows, South Fork American River below Slab Creek Reservoir Dam) and Condition 5.H. (Reservoir Levels, Interim Modifications) of the UARP water quality certification. Proposed amendments to Condition 1.K. will postpone implementation of increased minimum instream flows in the South Fork American River below Slab Creek Reservoir Dam while necessary facility modifications are completed. Proposed amendments to condition 5.H. will expand the basis for temporary reservoir level modification to include maintenance and construction activities upon receipt of Deputy Director approval.
