In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR part 380, the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for an original license for the 3.7-megawatt (MW) Gathright Hydroelectric Project located on the Jackson River in Alleghany County, Virginia, at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (Corp) Gathright Dam and has prepared a final environmental assessment (EA). In the final EA, Commission staff analyze the potential environmental effects of licensing the project and conclude that issuing a license for the project, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the final EA is on file with the Commission and is available for public inspection. The final EA may also be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
