Wisconsin Electric Power Company; Notice of Availability of 
Environmental Assessment

February 19, 1999.
    An environmental assessment (EA) is available for public review. 
The EA analyzes the environmental impacts of deleting about 215 acres 
of land (primary action) from the Kingford Hydroelectric Project 
boundary and development of this land (secondary action) as a Florence 
County, Michigan, planned unit development (PUD). The Wisconsin 
Electric Power Company is the project's licensee and the project is 
located on the Menominee River in Florence County, Wisconsin and 
Dickinson County, Michigan.
    Removing this land would support economic development in Florence 
County and is designed to compensate Florence County for selling about 
3,900 acres to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) to 
help create the 8,850 acre Spread Eagle Barrens State Natural Area 
(SEBNA). A portion of the SEBNA (1,366 acres) occupies Kingford Project 
    The 215 acres are located in Florence County on the Wisconsin side 
of the Menominee River, Township 39 North, Range 19 East, Sections 11 
and 14 within the project boundary. This area is in northeast Wisconsin 
to the west of the cities of Kingford and Iron Mountain, Michigan, at 
the upper end of the Kingford and Iron Mountain, Michigan, at the upper 
end of the Menominee River impounded by the dam.
    The EA was written by staff in the Office of Hydropower Licensing, 
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Copies of the EA are available 
for inspection and reproduction at the Commission's Public Reference 
Room, located at 888 First Street, N.E., Room 2A, Washington, D.C. 
20426, or by calling (202) 208-1371. The EA may be viewed on the web at 
www.ferc.fed.us/online/rims.htm (call (202) 208-2222 for assistance).
