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 the application for minor license for the existing Hart Hydroelectric Project located on the South Branch of the Pentwater River in Oceana County, Michigan, and has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) for the project.
The DEA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of the project and concludes that licensing the project, with appropriate environmental protective measures, would not constitute a major Federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment
