In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission or FERC) regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 Federal Register 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed applications for subsequent licenses for the Upper Red Lake Dam Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 2484-018) and the Weed Dam Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 2464-015), located on the Red River in Shawano County, Wisconsin. The projects do not occupy federal land.
The environmental assessment analyzes the potential environmental effects of continuing to operate the projects, and concludes that issuing subsequent licenses for the projects, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.Start Printed Page 49636
