The online center for public involvement in the Upper Great Plains Wind Energy Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS)
Western Area Power Administration and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will prepare a 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 will also identify mitigation strategies, best management practices, and comprehensive environmental review procedures for evaluating future wind energy projects.
