Public Meeting Planned On Fish Restoration Project

PG&E has scheduled a public meeting for next week to gather comments on a draft license amendment application for its Battle Creek hydroelectric system. Battle Creek, a tributary to the Sacramento River, is being restored through the Battle Creek Salmon and Steelhead Restoration Project, a multi-agency effort to increase threatened and endangered Chinook Salmon and Central Valley Steelhead populations by restoring approximately 42 miles of habitat in Battle Creek and an additional six miles of tributaries. The meeting will focus on PG&E's draft license amendment application for phase two of the restoration project. A 60 day comment period closes on October 28th. The meeting will be Thursday September 25th at 4PM at the Hampton Inn on Adobe Road in Red Bluff.
