Resource Conservation Groups

Various Resource Conservation Groups (RCGs), each comprised of a variety of stakeholders and DESC staff, were developed as part of the relicensing process to identify Project issues and develop recommendations to address or resolve these issues.  Each group provides a forum for discussion of specific issues associated around a common theme.

RCGs formed to address Project issues include:

Meeting notes and other documents developed during relicensing associated with each RCG are located at the appropriate link above. If you would like to become a participant of an RCG, please contact Kelly Kirven at

The Water Quality, Fish and Wildlife RCG includes the Fish Passage Technical Committee, a sub-group developed to focus specifically on fish passage issues at the Project. Documents and meeting notes pertaining to fish passage can be found the page linked below.

Occasionally during relicensing all RCGs convene to discuss the Project.  Meeting notes from these Joint RCG meetings are located below.
