The specifications for the proposal were filed with the Commission on January 29, 2018, and supplemented with additional supporting information on February 13, July 16, and August 1, 2018. The project is located on the Feather River in Butte County, California. PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57469 California DWR proposes to repair and reconstruct the Lake Oroville main spillway as a result of the failure of the main spillway beginning on February 7, 2017. California DWR also proposes to fortify the existing emergency spillway located adjacent to the main spillway and to relocate a buried transmission line near the Hyatt Power Plant. The proposed work would take place over two years, with major portions of the work at the main spillway completed on an expedited basis prior to the commencement of the normal wet season on November 1, 2017.

Staff prepared a draft environmental assessment (EA), which analyzes the potential environmental effects associated with the reconstruction and modification of project structures. The draft EA also discusses the environmental effects of California DWR’s response to the spillway failure and concludes that California DWR’s proposed activities, with specified environmental protection measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
