Abstract: 

This comment explores the legal theory behind the FPA to demonstrate that environmental protection has been an inherent aspect of the hydropower licensing process. Secondly, the attempt of the 1986 ECPA amendments to coerce greater FERC consideration of fish and wildlife values into the procedure is evaluated. Finally, the future of hydropower licensing is examined in the context of policy decisions embodied in the final rule.
