Western Area Power Administration and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (the Agencies) will prepare a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) to evaluate the impacts of wind energy development in Western’s Upper Great Plains Region (all or parts of Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota), and on the Service’s grassland and wetland easements in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. The PEIS also will identify mitigation strategies, standard construction practices, and best management practices; and establish a . . .
