In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission's) regulations (18 CFR Part 380), Commission staff has reviewed the application for exemption from licensing for the 50-watt Potter Creek Hydroelectric Project, located in Flathead County, Montana, and has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA). The proposed project would be built on private lands owned by the applicant and on 0.51 acres of U.S. Forest Service land in the Flathead National Forest. The EA contains the Start Printed Page 22771staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the project and concludes that exempting the project from licensing, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the EA is on file with the Commission and is available for public inspection. The EA may also be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
