In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR Part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), Office of Energy Projects staff have reviewed Symbiotics, LLC's application for the proposed Applegate Dam Project and prepared this environmental assessment (EA). The proposed project would be located at the existing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (Corps) Applegate dam located at river mile 45.7 on the Applegate River, near the town of Medford, in Jackson County, Oregon. The proposed project facilities would occupy 7.1 acres of federal land administered by the Corps below and adjacent to the dam. In addition, the project boundary would include 2.32 acres of National Forest System land and 0.66 acre of U.S. Bureau of Land Management land.
This EA contains the Commission staff's analysis of the potential future environmental effects of the project. Staff has concluded that licensing the project, with appropriate environmental protective measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
