Agency: Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration
The Western Area Power Administration (Western), an agency of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) intends to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the construction and operation of the proposed NextGen Energy Facility (Project) in South Dakota.

Long-Term Regional Dialogue Policy
Document Number: E7-14529
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-27
Agency: Bonneville Power Administration, Department of Energy
This notice announces the availability of the NEPA ROD for BPA's adoption of a policy for its power supply role after fiscal year 2011. This policy is intended to provide BPA's customers with greater clarity about their Federal power supply so they can effectively plan for the future and, if they choose, make capital investments in long- term electricity infrastructure. Each of the issues in this Long-Term Regional Dialogue Policy that were found to have any environmental effects were determined to be within the scope of the Market-Driven Alternative adopted in the Business Plan ROD. Thus, this NEPA ROD is consistent with and tiered to the Business Plan Environmental Impact Statement (DOE/EIS-0183, June 1995) and the Business Plan ROD (August 15, 1995). The Policy, which is the result of a Regional Dialogue process that began in 2002, is described more fully in a separately issued Administrator's ROD that addresses the legal and policy rationale supporting the administrative decisions in the Regional Dialogue.
