Document Description
Two of the UARP reservoirs, Loon Lake and Ice House reservoirs, are in need of maintenance that requires the reservoirs to be drained to below the minimum end-of-month reservoir levels allowed by the FERC license and water quality certification. The proposed reservoir level variances are limited to July, August, and Sept. 2017. SMUD, as lead agency, prepared a Final CEQA Supplemental Analysis to the FERC/US Forest Service Final EIS for the UARP and filed a NOD on July 24, 2012. The SWRCB considered the Final CEQA Supplement during the development of its water quality certification for the UARP.
