Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

[Project Nos. 2183-072]

Grand River Dam Authority; Notice of Availability of 
Environmental Assessment

    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) 
regulations, 18 CFR part 380, the Office of Energy Projects has 
reviewed a shoreline management plan submitted by Grand River Dam 
Authority (GRDA or licensee) pursuant to article 406 of the project 
license (FERC No. 2183). An environmental assessment (EA) has been 
prepared as part of staff's review of the proposal. The project is 
located on the Grand River in Mayes County, Oklahoma.
    The proposed shoreline management plan provides for consistent land 
management policies and permitting decisions on project lands in the 
short term and over the life of the project license. The document 
serves to guide GRDA in protecting and enhancing the project's 
environmental, recreational, and other values. It also provides the 
background to support permitting decisions and other activities 
undertaken by GRDA within the project boundary. The EA contains 
Commission staff's analysis of the probable environmental impacts of 
implementation of the proposed shoreline management plan, and concludes 
that approval of the proposed plan would not constitute a major federal 
action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
    The EA is attached to a Commission order titled ``Order Modifying 
and Approving Shoreline Management Plan Under Article 406,'' which was 
issued April 30, 2014, and is available for review and reproduction at 
the Commission's Public Reference Room, located at 888 First Street 
NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426. The EA may also be viewed on the 
Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the ``eLibrary'' 
link. Enter the docket number (P-2183) in the docket number field to
