Start Preamble

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 Code of Federal Regulations Part 380, Commission staff has reviewed the application for amendment of license for the Twin Falls Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 11831) and has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The project is located on the Menominee River near Iron Mountain, in Iron and Dickinson counties, Michigan, and Florence County, Wisconsin.

The EA contains the Commission staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of decommissioning an existing powerhouse, constructing a new powerhouse and spillway, and making structural improvements to the dam, and concludes that authorizing the amendment, 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 using the “eLibrary” link.
