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 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for a new license for the 21.814-megawatt (MW) Otter Creek Hydroelectric Project (Commission Project No. 2558-029) and has prepared a final environmental assessment (final EA). The project consists of three developments (Proctor, Beldens, and Huntington Falls) located Start Printed Page 46939on Otter Creek in Addison and Rutland counties, Vermont.
In the final EA, Commission staff analyzes the potential environmental effects of relicensing the project and concludes that issuing a new 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 available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
