In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47879), the Office of Energy Projects reviewed the application for surrender of project license for the Ramseur Hydroelectric Project, located on the Deep River in the Town of Ramseur, Randolph County, North Carolina, and has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA). In the EA, Commission staff analyzed the potential environmental impacts of the project and conclude that surrender of the project license as proposed would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
