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 application for a new major license for the Middle Chattahoochee Project, located on the Chattahoochee River in Harris and Muscogee Counties, Georgia, and Lee and Russell Counties, Alabama, and prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project. The project does not affect Federal lands.
In this EA, the staff analyzes the potential environmental effects of the existing project and concludes that licensing the project, with staff's recommended measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the EA and application 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 “e-Library” link.
