In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for a new license for the 4.18-megawatt Brassua Hydroelectric Project, located on the Moose River, in Somerset County, Maine, and has prepared a final Environmental Assessment (FEA) for the project.
The FEA contains staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of continued operation of the project and concludes that continued operation, 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 FEA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Start Printed Page 58261Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
