Document Description
Tri-Dam Project operates Donnelis, Beardsley and Tulloch hydro-electric generation units. The FERC license for the Project (#2975) includes the State Water Resources Control Boards's (State Water Board's) certification, which requires that Tri-Dam release supplemental flows below Sand Bar Diversion Dam to mimic a natural hydrograph in that reach of the MFSR. This Project action is for the temporary suspension of supplemental flows requried under certification Condition 3 of the Project's water quality certification in order to protect Foothill Yellow-legged Frogs (FYLFs), which have a highly increased chance of breeding earlier than normal due to dry water year conditions.
