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), Office of Energy Projects staff has reviewed the application for a new license for the Blind Slough Hydroelectric Project, an existing, operating facility located on Crystal Creek, near the City of Petersburg, Alaska. In the environmental assessment (EA), the staff has analyzed the potential environmental impacts of the existing project and has concluded that approval of the project, with appropriate environmental protection measures, would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
