Start Preamble

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission or FERC) regulations, 18 CFR part 380, the Office of Energy Projects has review Georgia Power Company's application for license for the Bartletts Ferry Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 485-065), located on the Chattahoochee River, along the Georgia-Alabama border, in Harris County Georgia, and Lee and Chambers counties, Alabama. The Project does not occupy federal lands.

Staff prepared an environmental assessment (EA), which analyzes the potential environmental effects of relicensing the Project, and concludes that relicensing the Project, 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 or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov, using the “eLibrary” link.
