Pacific Gas and Electric Company; Notice of Availability of 
Environmental Assessment

    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) regulations, 
18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office of Energy 
Projects has reviewed an application submitted by Pacific Gas and 
Electric Company (licensee) to allow Placer County Water Agency (PCWA), 
the use of Drum-Spaulding Hydroelectric Project No. 2310 project lands 
and water within the project boundary on South Canal for the 
construction of a raw water intake facility (facility). The Drum-
Spaulding Hydroelectric Project is located on the Upper Yuba and Bear 
Rivers in Nevada and Placer counties, California. The project occupies 
federal lands administered by the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Bureau of 
Reclamation, and U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
    An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared as part of 
Commission staff's review of the proposal. In the application, the 
licensee proposes to allow PCWA to construct a raw water intake 
facility on South Canal. Once constructed and operable, PCWA would use 
the facility as a redundant water withdrawal location to other 
withdrawal points within the project that it owns and operates, 
withdrawing up to 62 million gallons of water per day from the project 
through the proposed facility. Because the proposed facility would be a 
redundant withdrawal location, water withdrawn from the proposed 
facility would not represent an increase in water withdrawn from the 
project than what is already occurring. Following construction of the 
facility, PCWA would make minor repairs to an existing storm drain on 
the bank side of South Canal. This EA contains Commission staff's 
analysis of the probable environmental impacts of the construction and 
operation of the proposed facility, as well as the minor

storm drain repairs, and concludes that approval of the proposal would 
not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the 
quality of the human environment.
