In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed an application for a marina, boat ramp, and two boat docks on High Rock reservoir and has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for these facilities. High Rock reservoir is part of the Yadkin Hydroelectric Project on the Yadkin/Pee Dee River in Montgomery, Stanly, Davidson, Rowan, and Davie Counties, North Carolina. The proposed facilities do not occupy any federal or tribal lands.
The EA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the proposed facilities and concludes that approving the application would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.Start Printed Page 43860
