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 Start Printed Page 37811Order No. 486, and 52 FR. 47,897, the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for a new license for the Piercefield Hydroelectric Project, located on the Raquette River, in St. Lawrence and Franklin Counties, New York, and has prepared a single environmental assessment (EA) for the project. The project does not use or occupy any federal facilities or lands. In the EA, Commission 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.
