Idaho Power Precipitation Gauge Special Use Permit
Idaho Power is proposing to install precipitation gauges at four existing weather monitoring sites. The data from the precipitation gauges is needed to monitor Idaho Power's weather modification project and for research purposes. The combined scoping and 30-day Notice and Comment period will begin following the publication of a Solicitation for Public Comment Legal Notice in the Idaho Statesman (newspaper of record). The legal notice is anticipated to be published on September 29, 2012. The publication date in the newspaper of record is the exclusive means for calculating the comment period.
Gauges would be placed at NRCS SNOTEL sites at Banner Summit, Cozy Cove, and Deadwood Summit and at the Bearskin Remote Automated Weather Station (RAWS) site.
