Optional 2019 Conference Event:
Water Over the Dam "WERC-shop"
Add-On Workshop: Water Over the Dam: “WERC-shop” on Federal Hydroelectric Project Relicensing
Thursday, October 24, 2019; 1:00–5:00pm
$75.00 per attendee
Has your firm worked on or wanted to bid on a FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) hydroelectric relicensing project? Do you understand the nuances of the traditional vs. integrated licensing processes? How about the difference between a FERC Boundary and a traditional APE? What is a PAD and how is a Study Plan prepared for cultural and tribal resources? What is the ex parte process?
ACRA’s WERCshop may provide background to firms unacquainted with the process and for those more familiar with relicensing, we will explore several of the more complex topics. The WERCshop will feature an expert panel composed of Industry Project Managers, Tribal representatives, CRM practitioners, and the Washington DC FERC archaeologist (pending federal budget approval!). Following the hydro relicensing roundtable, we will visit the beautiful Spokane Falls for a tour of Avista’s historic Post Street Substation in downtown Spokane. Local delicacies and snacks provided along the way!
