Continuing to Serve Community Stakeholders
KC LLC, a collaboration of Davis Hydro LLC and Sackheim Consulting, remains committed to
preserving and enhancing recreational fishing at Kilarc Reservoir, immediately and in the long term. We believe that the best way to achieve this goal,
and other benefits that can be integrated into the continued operation of this historic hydroelectric generating facility, is to collaborate with
all community stakeholders who would like to learn more and become engaged in the transition process.
The FERC has released a draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) recommending approval of PG&E's
proposed plan to dismantle a majority of the facilities, including Kilarc Reservoir. KC Hydro will
continue to collaborate with the community to save Kilarc Reservoir for recreation and green
hydroelectric generation with new financial and in-kind support to recovery of endangered salmonids
The Commission staff will hold a second Public Meeting:
Kilarc-Cow Creek Project Public Meeting
Date : August 17, 2010
Time : 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. (PST)
Place : Whitmore Community Center
Address: 30555 Whitmore Road, Whitmore, CA 96096
Telephone: (530) 472-6463
This meeting is open to the public. At this meeting, state and federal resource
agency personnel, Indian tribes, non-governmental organizations, and other interested
persons will have the opportunity to provide oral and/or written comments regarding the
Draft EIS. The meeting will be recorded by a court reporter, and all statements (verbal
and written) will become part of the Commissionís public record for the project.
The FERC has explicitly stated "You do not need
intervenor status to have your comments considered." If you would like to have your letter filed on your behalf with the FERC,
provide your name, as you would like it to appear publicly, and your phone number that will not be made public but may be used by the FERC
to confirm you approve publication of your comments, and send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
Action by KC Hydro was Critical to Resumption of Fish Stocking for Recreational Fishing at Kilarc
CDFG staff have already started their evaluation, taking into consideration the limited amount of effort required to complete their work after the
KC LLC biologist has already completed the analysis, and in anticipation of many fishermen, women and children benefiting from the stocking, at the
August 1 picnic and as expressed by signatures on the petitions that KC LLC had developed and submitted.
Steve Baumgartner of California Department of Fish and Game sent an e-mail to
Kelly Sackheim on June 29, 2010 stating "We do have the catchable triploids on hand at Darrah Springs Hatchery. Understanding that the reservoir
receives the level of angling pressure that it does, coupled with the upcoming event,
we will do everything we can to expedite the completion of the Pre Stocking Evaluation."
KC LLC is optimistic that by leading a similar collaborative approach, we will be able to build an enhanced multipurpose facility at
Kilarc upon PG&Eís hydropower license surrender.
