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 staff has reviewed the applications for the sale of 14 parcels of project land adjacent to Lake Murray, the Saluda Hydroelectric Project impoundment, for future private development and has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) for the land sales. The parcels of land are located in Lexington, Saluda, and Newberry counties, South Carolina.
The FEA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of the proposed sale of certain tracts of land and concludes that SCE&G's proposal to sell the 14 parcels of project land for future private development, with staff recommended measures, would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
