Grange Hydroelectric Project; Notice of Dispute Resolution Panel 
Meeting and Technical Conference

    On March 16, 2015, Commission staff, in response to the filing of a 
notice of study dispute by the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service 
on February 23, 2015, convened a single three-person Dispute Resolution 
Panel (Panel) pursuant to 18 CFR 5.14(d).
    The Panel will hold a technical conference at the time and place 
identified below. The technical conference will address the study 
dispute regarding potential effects of the La Grange Project (P-14581) 
on the genetic makeup of steelhead/rainbow trout in the Tuolumne River. 
As directed by the Commission's letter issued on February 27, 2015, the

state, and federal agencies, Indian tribes, and other interested 
parties are invited to attend the meeting as observers. The Panel may 
also request information or clarification on written submissions as 
necessary to understand the matters in dispute. The Panel will limit 
all input that it receives to the specific studies or information in 
dispute and will focus on the applicability of such studies or 
information to the study criteria stipulated in 18 CFR 5.9(b). If the 
number of participants wishing to speak creates time constraints, the
