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 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for an Original Major License for the Broken Bow Re-Regulation Dam Hydropower Project.
The project would be located at the United States Army Corps of Engineers' (Corps) Broken Bow Re-Regulation Dam on the Mountain Fork River in McCurtain County, Oklahoma, and would occupy federal lands administered by the Corps. Staff has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the project.
The EA contains staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects 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 or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov, using the “eLibrary” link. Enter the docket number excluding the last three digits in the docket number field to access the document.
