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 South Carolina Gas & Electric Company's application requesting authorization to permit Boulevard Partners, Inc. use of Saluda Project lands and waters. The permit would authorize the installation of a concrete boat ramp and a multi-boat dock facility capable of berthing 32 boats. The proposed work would take place at a residential community to be known as Lakeside at Ballentine located on Lake Murry, Ballentine, Richland County, South Carolina. A Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) has been prepared for the proposal.
The DEA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the project and concludes that approving the request would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the DEA 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.
