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 Osage Project, located on the Osage River in south central Missouri, and has prepared a final Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project. In the final EA, Commission staff analyzed the potential environmental effects of relicensing the project and concluded 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.
A copy of the final EA is 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.
