Document Description
The McCloud-Pit Hydroelectric Project (Project) is located on the McCloud River, Pit River, and Iron Canyon Creek in Shasta and Siskiyou Counties, California. The 368-megawatt Project consists of three power-generating developments. These developments collectively include two storage reservoirs (Mccloud and Iron Canyon), two regulating reservoirs (Pit 6 and Pit 7), one afterbay (Pit 7), three powerhouses (James B. Black, Pit 6, and Pit 7), five dams (Pit 6, Pit 7, Pit 7 Afterbay, Iron Canyon, and McCloud), two tunnels, and associated equipment, recreational facilities, and transmission facilities. The average annual energy generated between 1987 and 2016 from the James B. Black, Pit 6, and Pit 7 Powerhouses was 629.9, 341.2, and 470.3 gigawatt-hours, respectively. The majority of Project lands (45 percent) are managed by the United States Forest Service. The Project also occupies land managed by the United States Bureau of Land Management, as well as land owned by Pacific Gas and Electric Company and other private landholders. Pacific Gas and Electric Company will receive a Clean Water Act section 401 water quality certification from the State Water Resources Control Board in connection with the Project.
