The State Water Board issued a NOP of an EIR for the KHP in September 2008 and held a series of scoping meetings in October and November 2008. Since issuance of the 2008 NOP, three settlement agreements have been developed that propose considerable changes to the KHP and address other interests in the Klamath River Basin. Substantial new information has been developed under the Settlement Agreements and related processes, including development of an environmental review document evaluating dam removal impacts, data collection on water quality and fisheries health, and studies that relate to the KHP. On August 15, 2014, the State Water Board is issuing a application from PacificCorp. In light of this new information, the State Water Board is issuing a new NOP for the KHP. Comments submitted in response to the prior NOP will be considered. Interested parties are encouraged to submit comments during this NOP solicitation.
