Start Preamble May 20, 2005.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) regulations contained in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (18 CFR part 380 [FERC Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897]), the Office of Energy Projects staff (staff) reviewed the applications for an Original Major License for the Augusta Canal Project, a New Major License for the Sibley Mill Project, and a Subsequent Minor License for the Enterprise Mill Project. Staff prepared a single environmental assessment (EA) for all three projects, which are located on the Canal, adjacent to the Savannah River, Richmond County, Augusta, GA.

The EA contains staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of the projects and concludes that licensing the projects, 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 or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at, using the “e-Library” link. Enter the docket number, excluding the last three digits, to access the document. For assistance, contact FERC Online Support at or toll-free at (866) 208-3676, or for TTY, contact (202) 502-8659.
