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 the application for amendment of license for a non-project use of project lands for the Wells Hydroelectric Project, located on the Upper Columbia River in Douglas, Okanogan, and Chelan Counties, Washington, and has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) for the project.
The FEA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the non-project use of project lands and concludes that approving the amendment, with appropriate environmental protective measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the FEA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
