Shorelands Guide

Hydro guides

This Shorelands Guide is designed to guide those interested in achieving shoreline land protection through the FERC relicensing process. It outlines the legal framework and strategies to develop a forceful case. The case studies show how thousands of very valuable shoreline and watershed acres have been protected during relicensing as part of protection, mitigation or enhancement requirements.

Within their channels and along their banks, these waters support dozens of native fish and other aquatic species. In addition, millions of state residents and tourists annually flock to California rivers to hike, swim, boat and fish. These recreational opportunities renew individual spirits and bolster local economies.
