Idaho Power Company (Idaho Power) filed an application for a new license for the existing C.J. Strike Project located on the Snake River and Bruneau River in Owyhee and Elmore Counties, Idaho, between the towns of Grandview and Bruneau. A major issue in this relicensing proceeding is how project-induced water-level fluctuations from load following operations affect aquatic and terrestrial resources. The final environmental impact statement (final EIS) presents the staff's evaluation of the developmental and nondevelopmental consequences of Idaho Power's Proposal and three alternatives: the No-action Alternative, the Idaho Power Proposal with Modifications, and the Run-of River Alternative. We make no recommendations on a preferred alternative in this final EIS.
