[Project No. 2417 Wisconsin]

Northern States Power Company; Notice of Availability of Final 
Environmental Assessment

September 1, 1995.
    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission's) 
Regulations, 18 CFR Part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 F.R. 47897), the Office 
of Hydropower Licensing has reviewed the application for a subsequent 
license for the existing Hayward Hydroelectric Project, located on the 
Namekagon River, in the City of Hayward, Sawyer County, Wisconsin and 
has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) for the project. In 
the FEA, the Commission's staff analyzed the potential environmental 
effects of the existing project and has concluded that approval of the 
project, with appropriate protection or enhancement measures, would not 
constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality 
of the human environment.
    The Notice of Availability of Draft Environmental Assessment for 
the Hayward Hydroelectric Project was issued on June 16, 1994. In 
response, the Commission received three comment letters which were 
reviewed by the Commission's staff and addressed in the FEA.
    Copies of the FEA are available for review in the Public Reference 
Branch, Room 3104, of the Commission's offices at 941 North Capitol 
Street NE., Washington, DC 20426.
Linwood A. Watson, Jr.,
Acting Secretary.
