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 prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for an application for amendment of license requesting Commission approval to permit the City of Augusta, Kentucky and its Electric Plant Board (licensee) to change the project design and transmission line route of the Meldahl Hydroelectric Project. The Meldahl Hydroelectric Project is located at the Corps' Captain Anthony Meldahl Locks and Dam on the Ohio River in Bracken County, Kentucky.
The EA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the proposal and concludes that approval of the proposal would not constitute a major Federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment. Start Printed Page 64
