On December 6th, 2012, American Whitewater filed comments with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Black Canyon Hydro's proposed hydroelectric project on Washington's North Fork Snoqualmie River. FERC issued a preliminary permit to Black Canyon Hydro in the summer of 2012, and is currently in the process of considering study requests required for the project. American Whitewater called for a whitewater recreation study, and also requested that angling resources in the area be evaluated. You can read our comments here.
