In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for a new license for the 8-megawatt (MW) Badger-Rapide Croche Hydroelectric Project located on the Fox River in Outagamie County, Wisconsin, and has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In the EA, Commission staff analyzes the potential environmental effects of relicensing the project and conclude that issuing a new license for the project, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the EA is on file with the Commission and is available for public inspection. The final EA may also be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
