The EA analyzes the environmental effects of a request to amend the license to authorize upgrades of turbines and generators at three of the four developments of the Yadkin Hydroelectric Project located on the Yadkin-Pee Dee River in Montgomery, Stanly, Davidson, Rowan, and Davie Counties, North Carolina. The Yadkin Hydroelectric Project contains the following reservoirs: High Rock, Tuckertown, Narrows (Badin) and Falls.
