Pacific Gas and Electric, owners of the Eel River Dams known as the Potter Valley Project (PVP), filed their Notice of Intent and Pre-Application Documents with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. This begins the relicensing process for the PVP, which consists of two dams, a mile-long diversion tunnel, and a small hydropower facility.
The PAD provides detailed information at the beginning of the relicensing process to help focus participants on key issues of the project. It provides an overview of the relicensing process and schedule, and includes a detailed description of Project facilities and operations. The PAD also describes existing environmental resources, and presents information on preliminary issues and studies PG&E may propose.
