In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and part 380 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR part 380; FERC Order No. 486 and 52 FR 47,897, the Office of Energy Projects Staff (staff) reviewed the application for a new license for the Waterbury Hydroelectric Project, located on the Little River in the town of Waterbury in Washington County, Vermont, and prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the project. The project does not use or occupy any federal facilities or 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 is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's website at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
