Citing the project as expensive, inefficient and environmentally unsound, there has been a huge public opposition to the proposed Hook Canyon project which would require construction of a new 160 foot high dam on the Fish Hook Creek in Rich County, Utah. FERC granted a preliminary permit for the project in September 2006.
Responding to public demand (and, in several cases, to direct requests from members of Congress), FERC staff held a series of meetings so that the public could raise concerns the Klamath project. The message they heard was loud and clear: restore the Klamath River and its fish.As of this writing, there are two scheduled public meetings remaining before the December 1, 2006 deadline for comments on FERC's draft EIS.
