RE: COMMENTS; Project # 2082-039
Dear Ms. Salas,
- For 90 years
- Water conservation and quality are contingent on affordable power for water pumping on Klamath Basin farms and ranches.
- Water storage and conservation development, paid for by agriculture, have increased electrical generating profitability of PacifiCorp. PacifiCorp rate payers benefit from Klamath Basin farm and ranch conservation practices.
- Upper Klamath Basin farms and ranches are family held enterprises preserving the heritage and traditions of rural America, while contributing to a world economy.
- The United States in partnership with Klamath agricultural producers have invested $50 million, with another $25 million by the end of 2007 through the EQUIP process in the name of water conservation. Those conservation efforts are dependent on affordable energy, and will be lost if FERC does not extend the condition to require affordable power to PacifiCorp FERC licenses or license extensions.
(We) request that the PacifiCorp FERC license for
Project # 2082 only be extended with all current
conditions and contracts. We would further request
that FERC license renewals continue THE condition
requiring PacifiCorp to come to compensatory terms
Concerned Klamath Basin Citizen
