Dismissal of appeal.
On May 5, 1997, Stora Enso North America (formerly known as Consolidated Papers, Inc. and Niagara Paper of Wisconsin) (Appellant), appealed the Wisconsin Department of Administration's (State) objection to the federal hydropower license for the Little Quinnesec Falls project. Action on this appeal stayed pending the resolution of judicial proceedings before the Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and negotiations between the Parties.
At the Appellant's request, the Assistant General Counsel for Ocean Services granted several stays of the consistency appeal, which were not opposed by the State. The State and the Appellant have reached an agreement on Appellant's proposed project and the State has determined that the activity is now consistent with the State's Coastal Management Program. By letter to Appellant, the State withdrew its objection to the project. Accordingly, the Appellant has requested that the appeal be withdrawn.
NOAA granted this request and the appeal has been dismissed. This is a final agency action for purposes of judicial review.Start Further Info
