In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) regulations contained in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (18 CFR part 380 [FERC Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897]), the Office of Energy Projects staff (staff) issued the draft environmental assessment (EA) for the application for amendment of license on February 27, 2007, for the Shoshone Falls Project, located on the Snake River, Jerome and Twin Falls counties, Idaho. In addition, on March 2, 2007, pursuant to section 10(j) of the Federal Power Act, staff issued a notice the application has been accepted for filing and is ready for further environmental analysis and requested motions to intervene, protests, comments, recommendations, terms and conditions, and fishway prescriptions. Staff reviewed all motions to intervene, protests, comments, recommendations, terms and conditions, and fishway prescriptions comments filed pursuant to the issuance of the draft EA and prepared a supplemental EA for the project. In this supplemental EA, staff analyzes the potential environmental effects of the proposed amendment of license and concludes that the proposal would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
