Environmentalists to Fight Project WASHINGTON - Oklahoma environmentalists threaten to take their fight to the courts if the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission fails to rescend its decision on a water supply project.

The FERC approved a license Wednesday to Fort Smith, Ark., for a license for its Lee Creek water-supply project. With approval in hand, the city has all of the federal permits and licenses it needs to begin construction of the controversial water-supply reservoir. But environmentalist opponents renewed their pledge to fight the project in court.

The state still must approve a dam-safety permit and a drinking-water permit, but city officials say they don't expect difficulty obtaining those.

Opponents have 30 days to ask FERC for a rehearing.

The stream rises in northwestern Arkansas, crosses the state line into Oklahoma, and then returns to Arkansas to empty into the Arkansas River. The dam would be built in Crawford County, northwest of Van Buren.

State officials in Oklahoma, where the watercourse is called Lee's Creek and is prized as a free-flowing stream, say they're still studying their options. But an official with the Oklahoma Wildlife Federation said Wednesday a lawsuit will be filed if FERC's decision stands.

``There's no doubt whatsoever,'' said Chet Bynum, a Norman doctor who heads the federation's scenic rivers committee. ``I think there will be an administrative appeal and-or a lawsuit.''

Fort Smith officials said they will now focus on financing construction of the $25 million to $30 million reservoir and on trying to win Oklahoma's support for the project. City officials plan to meet with Oklahoma Gov. Henry Bellmon and Attorney General Robert Henry early next month in an effort to discuss the state's concerns, Fort Smith city administrator Strib Boynton said.
