Start Preamble

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission or FERC) Start Printed Page 68234regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed Grand River Dam Authority's application for license for the 260-megawatt (MW) Salina Pumped Storage Project (FERC Project No. 2524), located on Saline Creek and the Saline Creek arm of Lake Hudson on the Grand River, near the city of Salina in Mayes County, Oklahoma. The project does not occupy any Federal lands.

Staff prepared a draft environmental assessment (EA), which analyzes the potential environmental effects of relicensing the project, and concludes that relicensing 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 draft EA is on file with the Commission and is available for public inspection. The draft may also be viewed on the Commission's Web site at www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
