Legal Case/Hearing: California v. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 495 U.S. 490 (1990)

Abstract
This case concerned overlapping federal and state regulation of a hydroelectric project located near a California stream. The Federal Government claimed the exclusive authority to set the minimum stream flows that the federally licensed power plant must maintain and California sought to set a higher minimum stream flow standard. The Court held that allowing California to require a higher flow requirement would interfere with the federal agency's "comprehensive planning authority" creating an obstacle to achievement of the the federal purpose.
