Start Preamble November 9, 2007.

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 a New Major License for the Morgan Falls Hydroelectric Project.

The Morgan Falls Project is located in the metropolitan city of Atlanta area on the Chattahoochee River, at river mile 312.6, and about 36 miles downstream from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Buford dam (Lake Sidney Lanier) in Cobb and Fulton Counties, Georgia. The project occupies about 14.4 acres of federal lands within the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area managed by the National Park Service. Staff has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project.

In the EA Commission, staff analyzed the potential environmental effects of relicensing the project and concludes 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 EA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at using the “eLibrary” link.
