USACE is currently reviewing environmental compliance documentation submitted by the requester.  USACE anticipates activities proposed by Evergy will not adversely impact federally
threatened and endangered species that may occur within the project area.  The proposed project is also being reviewed for cultural resources, in accordance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, based on an area of potential effect based upon construction plans and Endangered Species Act figures. Based on a cultural resources survey previously conducted within this area of potential effect, it is anticipated the project will have no potential to effect cultural and historic properties which may be in close proximity to the project area.
