NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
DWR is proposing to install a safety buoy line across the Feather River immediately downstream of the Fish Barrier Dam. This project is in response to a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) inspection of the Oroville Project Facilities during June of 2008. FERC concluded that a safety barrier was necessary to prevent access to the base of the Fish Barrier Dam spillway. This project will entail the installation of permanent anchors to be cemented to the bedrock on both sides of the Feather River, to support a cable approximately 175 feet long that will span the river and be floated with buoys.
