Yuba County Water Agency; Notice of Study Plan Meeting

    a. Project Name and Number: Yuba River Development Project No. 
    b. Date and Time of Meeting: March 11, 2015; 12:00 p.m. Pacific 
    c. Place: Teleconference; Phone Number: (866) 994-6437; Passcode: 
    d. FERC Contact: Alan Mitchnick, [email protected] or (202) 
    e. Purpose of Meeting: Yuba County Water Agency (YCWA) plans to 
implement Study 7.11a, Radio Telemetry Study of Spring- and Fall-Run 
Chinook Salmon Migratory Behavior Downstream of Narrows 2 Powerhouse, 
in 2015. The purpose of the study is to gain a better understanding of 
the relationship between operation of the Narrows 2 powerhouse and 
spring-run and fall-run Chinook salmon movement and behavior in the 
Yuba River near the Narrows 2 powerhouse and as far downstream as the 
Narrows Pool. However, due to the continued dry conditions in 
California, the Narrows 2 powerhouse's normal operation may be 
curtailed in 2015, and would not operate within its full range of flows 
(i.e., up to 3,400 cubic feet per second). As such, Commission staff 
and YCWA wish to discuss with interested stakeholders whether the 
implementation of Study 7.11a in 2015 is appropriate and whether study 
results would be sufficient to support the Commission's environmental 
review of the project.
    f. All local, state, and federal agencies, Indian tribes, and other 
interested parties are invited to participate.

     Dated: February 27, 2015.
Nathaniel J. Davis, Sr.,
Deputy Secretary.
