Document Description
Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) is proposing to initiate the Middle Fork Project Communications Upgrade Project. PCWA owns and operates the Middle Fork American River Project (MFP), a multi-purpose water supply and hydro-generation project designed to manage streamflows in the Middle Fork American River, the Rubicon River, and several associated tributary streams. The MFP includes existing communications facilities that allow transfer of information between powerhouse and PCWA's Church Street communication tower facility and its Foresthill and Auburn offices. Some of these facilities have deteriorated and need to be replaced, and others need redundant facilities installed, as required by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC).
