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 new license for the Eel Weir Project, located at the outlet of Sebago Lake, and has prepared a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project. In the draft EA, Commission staff analyzed the potential environmental effects of relicensing the project and concludes that issuing a new license for the project, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major Federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
Copies of the draft EA are available for review in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
