FERC Report/Study


FERC studies are part of a class of documents that are prepared by Commission staff or by a consultant under contract with FERC and issued by the Commission on a topic or subject related to the Commission's regulatory responsibilities.  FERC reports class is a group of reports prepared and issued by the Office of Hydropower Licensing, one of its divisions, or regional offices, summarizing the findings and recommendations determined by a review of the records or technical data or by a field investigation and inspection of a hydropower project.  Such a report can be prepared in an evaluation process; thus, it is intended to be an internal working document not available to the public.  In other instances, such reports provide technical and engineering data necessary to meet safety and environmental requirements and are public records of compliance with these standards.
