In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission or FERC) regulations, 18 CFR part 380, Commission staff has reviewed the application for amendment of license for the partially constructed but not operating Sixmile Creek Project (FERC No. 6764) and has prepared an environmental assessment (EA). The project is located on the Sixmile Creek in Sanpete County, Utah. The project would occupy 10.86 acres of federal lands administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service.
The EA contains the Commission staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of the proposed addition of new generating capacity and concludes that authorizing the amendment, with appropriate environmental protective measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the EA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room 2-A of the Commission's offices at 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426. The EA also may be viewed on the Commission's Internet Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
