Description of Request: The licensee requests a temporary variance of the minimum flow requirements in the West Branch Feather River below the Hendricks Head Dam, in Butte Creek E:\FR\FM\01JYN1.SGM 01JYN1 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 35080 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 124 / Thursday, July 1, 2021 / Notices below the Butte Head Dam, and in Philbrook Creek below Philbrook Dam. The licensee requests that the instantaneous dry year minimum flow requirement of 7 cubic feet per second (cfs) at Hendricks Head and Butte Head Diversion Dams be temporarily modified to a 7 cfs, 48-hour average minimum flow. The licensee states that the temporary variance would eliminate the need to release additional buffer flows of 4 to 5 cfs and instead, allocate those flows to the lower reaches of Butte Creek, where Central Valley spring-run Chinook salmon are currently holding. In addition, the licensee requests that the minimum flow requirement in Philbrook Creek be reduced to 0.8 cfs, with a 0.2 cfs buffer, for a total of 1 cfs. The licensee requests the variance due to exceptionally dry conditions and limited water availability in the project area. Additionally, the licensee states that the proposed variance would preserve cold water storage in Philbrook Reservoir, increase flow to Butte Creek via the Hendricks Canal, and decrease water residence time in the DeSabla Forebay, thus providing additional water to Butte Creek during the hot summer months to minimize high temperature effects to spring-run Chinook salmon, and to preserve water for release later in the summer months. The licensee would also provide monthly flow records to the resource agencies and notify them of any flow disruptions related to the variance. The licensee requests the variance until February 28, 2022 to protect spawning and redds, but may end the variance earlier if fall or winter rains bring precipitation to early spring-run Chinook salmon life stages, and in consultation with the project resource group. Due to the urgent nature of the variance request, Commission staff is approving the variance for a limited time (until August 12, 2021) until the public has an opportunity to review and comment on the licensee’s proposal. Following the close of the public notice period and consideration of any comments received, Commission staff will take action on the remaining timeline associated with the licensee’s request. l.
