 Background

 
​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. 
 
Packwood Lake Hydroelectric Project staff collaborate on the implementation of the certification with representatives of federal, state, and local resource agencies. The Project’s Resource Agencies Committee (RAC) includes but is not limited to the United States Department of Agriculture -  Forest Service (USFS), Cowlitz Indian Tribe (CIT), Federal Energy Regulatory Committee (FERC), National Park Service (NPS), United States Department of Commerce – National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), United States Department of Defense – Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), United States Department of the Interior - Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP), Washington State Department of Ecology (WDOE), Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), Yakama Nation (YN), consulting biologists, and EN subject matter experts.​
