The current term of the license expires January 31, 2023. The licensee wants to extend the term so it expires on January 31, 2026. The licensee has been working on a potential transfer of the Narrows Project to the Yuba County Water Agency (Yuba County). The Narrows Project is located within a half mile of Yuba County’s Yuba River Hydroelectric Project No. 2246, which is currently in relicensing. The licensee wants the extension so it has more time to complete its negotiations with Yuba County and potentially transfer the project before the Narrows Project enters relicensing. Should the transfer occur, Yuba County could then potentially relicense the Narrows Project as part of the Yuba River Project. k.
