In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47879), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for a subsequent license for the Trinity Hydroelectric Project, located on Phelps Creek and James Creek, tributaries of the Chiwawa River, in Chelan County, Washington, and has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (FEA). The project occupies about 72 acres of land within the Wenatchee National Forest, administered by the U.S. Forest Service.
The FEA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the project and concludes that licensing the project, with the appropriate environmental protective measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the FEA is on file with the Commission and is available for public inspection. The FEA may also be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
