P-2246-058 Yuba River Hydroelectric Project National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS)
NMFS disputes the treatment of several of its study requests, filed on March 7, 2011, in the Commissionís study plan determination, issued on September 30, 2011.

NMFS specifically identified study requests 1 through 6 and study request 8 as the disputed elements of its overall, March 7, 2011, filing.

Requests 1 through 6 refer to the effects of project and related activities on: (1) Fish passage for anadromous fish;
(2) Hydrology for anadromous fish;
(3) Water temperatures for anadromous fish migration, holding, spawning, and rearing needs;
(4) Coarse substrate for anadromous fish: sediment supply, transport, and storage;
(5) Large wood and riparian habitat for anadromous fish; and
(6) Loss of marine-derived nutrients in the Yuba River.

Request 8 was for a study of anadromous fish ecosystem effects analysis: synthesis of direct, indirect, and cumulative effects of the project and related facilities on anadromous fish.
