A Reputation For-Integrity And Excellence

Hoopa Valley Tribe v. FERC

On Behalf of | Dec 28, 2019 | Public Utilities

In a petition for review of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s decision declining to impose conditions on a utility’s annual licenses so as to preserve the Klamath River’s trout fishery, the petition is denied where:

1) the Commission quite plainly articulated and applied a standard in rejecting the Tribe’s claims; and

2) the Commission’s determination that the utility was not causing “unanticipated, serious impacts” had sufficient factual support in the record.
