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 license for the Vail Hydroelectric Project and has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) for the project. The project is located on the Passumpsic River, in the Village of Lyndonville, within the county of Caledonia, Vermont. No Federal lands or facilities are occupied or used by the project.
The FEA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts 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.
A copy of the FEA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
