The Hydropower Reform Coalition submitted comments on March 10, 2020 in opposition to proposed changes to the implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Coalition’s comments state that the proposed new NEPA rule would make analysis worse and would harm the environment.
Analysis under NEPA is required whenever there is an action by a federal agency that may have impacts on the environment, including the issuance of permits and licenses. The Trump administration’s Council on Environmental Quality issued the proposed new rule for NEPA in January 2020.

On March 7, the House passed a bill by Representative Tipton Scott (R-CO) that would waive environmental review requirements for conduit hydropower projects on facilities owned by Bureau of Reclamation.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) for the relicensing of the Claytor hydroelectric project located on the New River in Pulaski County in Virginia. Appalachian Power Company is seeking to get a new license for the 75 MW project and had filed its application in June 2009.
