The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued the final signed Programmatic Agreement between the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Washington State Historic Preservation Officer on January 25, 2010, for managing properties that may be affected by issuing a license to Energy Northwest for the operation of the Packwood Lake Hydroelectric Project. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will require the licensee to implement the provisions of the Programmatic Agreement as a condition of issuing a new license for the project. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Washington State Historic Preservation Officer agree that the project will be administered in accordance with the stipulations in order to satisfy the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Section 106 responsibilities during the term of the project’s license.
