In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR 380 (Order No. 486; 52 FR 47897), the staff of the Office of Energy Projects (staff) has reviewed the application for a subsequent license for the De Pere Hydroelectric Project No. 4914 and has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project. The De Pere Hydroelectric Project is located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (COE) De Pere Dam, on the Fox River, in the City of De Pere, Brown County, Wisconsin.
The EA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the project and concludes that licensing the project, with appropriate environmental protective measures, would not constitute a major Federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the EA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room, located at 888 First Street, NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426, or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.

Salas, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. Please affix “De Pere Hydroelectric Project No. 4914-010” to all comments.
