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 an application for non-project use of project lands and waters at the Martin Dam Hydroelectric Project (FERC No. 349) and has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed non-project use. The project is located on Lake Martin near Dadeville, Tallapoosa County, Alabama.
In the application, Alabama Power Company (licensee) requests Commission authorization to permit The Profile Group to use project lands to build a walkway along the shoreline and 19 dock structures with 128 boat slips. The EA contains Commission staff's analysis of the probable environmental impacts of the proposal and concludes that approving the licensee's application, with staff's recommended environmental measures, would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
