City of Tacoma, Washington; Notice of Availability of Draft Environmental Assessment August 15, 1996. A draft environmental assessment (DEA) is available for public review. The DEA was prepared for an application filed by the City of Tacoma, Washington, licensee for the Cowlitz River Hydroelectric Project. In its application, the licensee requests Commission approval of a settlement agreement among the licensee, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (the Parties). The agreement creates a 14,000-acre wildlife management area. The Parties wish to include the agreement in the project license. The Cowlitz River Project is located on the Cowlitz River, near the City of Tacoma, in Lewis County, Washington. The DEA finds that approving the settlement agreement is not a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. The DEA was written by staff in the Office of Hydropower Licensing, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Copies of the DEA can be obtained by calling the Commission's public reference room at (202) 208-1371. Comments on the DEA must be filed with the Commission within 30 days from the date of this notice. Comments should be addressed to: Ms. Lois D. Cashell, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. Please include the project number (2016-022) on any comments filed. Lois D. Cashell, Secretary.
