In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) regulations, 18 Code of Federal Regulations part 380, the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed applications for original licenses for the Arkabutla Lake Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 13704–002), Sardis Lake Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 13701–002), Enid Lake Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 13703–002), and Grenada Lake Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 13702–002). The proposed projects would be constructed at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (Corps’) existing Arkabutla, Sardis, Enid, and Grenada dams located within the Yazoo River Basin in Mississippi. The Arkabutla Lake Hydroelectric Project would be near the town of Hernando, Mississippi, in Tate and DeSoto Counties on the Coldwater River at river mile (RM) 86.
