In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations (18 CFR part 380), the Office of Energy Projects has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) regarding Marquette Board of Light and Power's plan to repair the Tourist Park Dam of the Marquette Hydroelectric Project (FERC No. 2589) located on the Dead River in Marquette County, Michigan. This EA concludes that the proposed repair, with staff's recommended mitigation measures, would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
