In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR Part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47879), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for an original license for the Bowersock Mills and Power Company's Expanded Kansas River Hydropower Project, to be located on the Kansas River, Douglas County, Lawrence, Kansas, and prepared an environmental assessment (EA). In the EA, Commission staff analyzed the potential environmental effects of licensing the project and concluded that issuing a license, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.Start Printed Page 52524
