Petition for review of the FERC's authorization of the reconstruction of the Taum Sauk Pumped Storage Project, a hydroelectric generating plant, is denied where the FERC did not violate the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) as its decision not to include the impacts of relicensed operation in its environmental assessment of reconstruction was not arbitrary or capricious.
