This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
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 a proposed, comprehensive shoreline management plan (SMP) for Lake Keowee, a reservoir of the Keowee-Toxaway Project (FERC No. 2503), and has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the proposal. The project's Lake Keowee is located on the Keowee and Little Rivers in Pickens and Oconee Counties, South Carolina.
Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC, the project licensee, filed the proposed SMP to address increased interest in residential development along the Keowee reservoir shoreline, including future requests for multi-slip marina facilities. The proposed plan, itself, does not propose the construction of facilities or any ground-disturbing activities at Lake Keowee, but only serves as a management tool for the licensee to manage the reservoir and the adjoining shoreline. The EA contains Commission staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the proposal and concludes that approval of the proposed SMP, as modified by staff recommended measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
The EA is attached to a Commission order titled “Order Modifying and Approving Shoreline Management Plan,” which was issued May 25, 2007, and is available for review and reproduction at the Commission's Public Reference Room, located at 888 First Street, NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426. The EA may also be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “elibrary” link.
