Historical Properties Management Plan

The Hot Springs area is rich in cultural history, and the license from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) assigns Entergy a role in preserving that history for the benefit of future generations.

The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 created the National Register of Historic Places. Being placed on the register – or even meeting the criteria for eventual placement on the register – places certain restrictions on use of those places. The FERC license assigns to Entergy some responsibilities for protecting historical properties, including archeological sites, within the project boundary.

The FERC license requires Entergy to use a Historical Properties Management Plan (HPMP). The plan extends reasonable protection to all existing and future historic properties within the project boundaries. Certain construction activities will require more extensive review by Entergy, the state historic preservation officer, as well as the Caddo and Quapaw Indian Tribes, for historical and archeological protection. This includes activities at the dams and ground disturbance construction activities associated with shoreline docking and access facilities. This requirement has add steps in reviewing some requests for shoreline facility and activity permits.
