Document Description
Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) owns and operates the Middle Fork American River Project (MFP) under a 50-year Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC0 license that expired on February 28, 2013. On March 7, 2013, FERC issued an order authorizing PCWA to continue to operate the MFP under an annual license that is automatically renewed until action is taken by FERC on PCWA's Application for New License filed on February 23, 2011. Using FERC's Integrated Licensing Process, PCWA is seeking the renewal of its license to continue operation and maintenance of the MFP. The project under consideration is PCWA's operation and maintenance of the MFP under proposed conditions to be included in the new license issued by FERC. Compliance with CEQA is necessary to support PCWA's Board of Directors future discretionary action of accepting the new license issued by FERC.
