Environmental Assessment: Issue Permit for Installation of Infrastructure on Public Lands and Operation of a Phone System in the Stehekin Valley

The purpose of the proposed action is to issue a permit for use of National Park Service (NPS) facilities and lands within the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area (NRA) to construct necessary infrastructure and operate a public telephone system. This is needed to respond to the request of a private company (WeavTel) to develop a public telephone system in the Stehekin Valley. The infrastructure would be used to provide telecommunication services for the Stehekin Valley, in accordance with the Universal Service provisions of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The proposed services include supplying private telephone and internet to Stehekin residents, businesses and visitors at rates comparable to other areas in Chelan County.
