Title
Lower Klamath Project License Surrender
Description
The Lower Klamath Project License Surrender (Project) is located on the Klamath River in Siskiyou County, California, and Klamath County, Oregon. The Lower Klamath Project is currently part of the Klamath Hydroelectric Project (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [FERG] Project No. 2082), which is owned and operated by PacifiCorp. The Klamath Hydroelectric Project presently consists of seven dam developments: 1) East Side; 2) West Side; 3) Keno; 4) J.C. Boyle; 5) Fall Creek (located on Fall Creek, a Klamath River tributary); 6) Copco No. 1; 7) Copco No. 2; and 8) Iron Gate. The Lower Klamath Project comprises J.C. Boyle, Copco No. 1, Copco No. 2, and Iron Gate dams and associated facilities. On September 23, 2016, PacifiCorp and the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) filed a joint license transfer application with FERC, which seeks to transfer the Lower Klamath Project to the KRRC. Concurrent with the license transfer application, the KRRC filed a license surrender application with FERG to decommission the Lower Klamath Project (i.e., four dams and associated facilities). The KRRC applied to the State Water Resources Control Board, the CEQA lead agency, for a Clean Water Act section 401 water quality certification for the license surrender.
