Our work is NOT over: In a September 30 Draft Environmental Study, the FERC staff recommended denial of a license for Twin Lakes to dam the Bear River through the Oneida Narrows. To make sure that final denial occurs, we need to flood the FERC with comments of opposition to the dam.
All comments must be filed by Monday, November 30, 2015, and should reference Project No. 12486-008.
Please file comments electronically at http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/efiling.asp. Commenters can submit up to 6,000 characters, without prior registration, using the eComment system at http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/ecomment.asp. You must include your name and contact information at the end of your comments.
For assistance, contact FERC Online Support at FERCOnlineSupport@ferc.gov or toll-free at
(866) 208-3676, or for TTY, contact (202) 502-8659.
There will also be a public meeting on Thursday, October 29, 2015, 6:00 PM, at the Robinson Building, 186 W 2nd N, Preston, Idaho. Please attend. Written and oral comments are vital to help keep the Bear River in the Oneida Narrows free-flowing and open to all.
