Start Preamble October 29, 2009.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47879), the Commission has reviewed an application, filed January 15, 2009, to surrender the project license for the Occoquan River Hydroelectric Project, FERC Project No. 10828. The Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzes the environmental impacts of the proposed license surrender, decommissioning of hydroelectric facilities, and various dam safety related repairs, and concludes that approval of the application, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the Start Printed Page 57308human environment. The project is located on the Occoquan River in Prince William and Fairfax Counties, Virginia.

The EA was written by staff in the Office of Energy Projects, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission). A copy of the EA is attached to a Commission order titled “Order Modifying and Accepting Surrender of License” issued October 29, 2009, and is on file with the Commission and available for public inspections.
