In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47879), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the applications for license for the Rhinelander, Stevens Point, and Biron projects, located on the Wisconsin River, in Oneida, Portage, and Wood Counties, Wisconsin, and has prepared a Final Multiple Project Environmental Assessment (FEA) for these projects. There are no federal lands occupied by the project works or located within the project boundaries.
The FEA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of the project and concludes that licensing the projects, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the FEA is available for review at the Commission or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov, using the “FERRIS” link.
