FERC re-sets hydropower workshop for Oct. 22

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which had to cancel an Oct. 2 workshop on a new hydropower law due to the government shutdown, said Oct. 8 that it has re-scheduled the workshop for Oct. 22.

FERC staff will hold the workshop on Oct. 22 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. eastern daylight time (EDT). The agency will be seeking public comments and recommendations on the feasibility of a two-year process for the issuance of a license for hydropower development at non-powered dams and closed-loop pumped storage projects in compliance with section 6 of the Hydropower Regulatory Efficiency Act of 2013.

The workshop will be held in the commission meeting room at 888 First Street, NE, Washington, DC. The workshop will be open to the public and all interested parties are invited to participate. Individuals who registered for the original workshop date of Oct. 2 do not need to register again. Commission members will attend and may participate in the workshop.

Those who wish to file written comments may do so by Nov. 21.
