In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations, 18 CFR Part 380, the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for a new license for the 451.8-megawatt (MW) Kinzua Pumped Storage Project located on the Allegheny River in Warren County, Pennsylvania, adjacent to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (Corps) Kinzua dam and has prepared an environmental assessment (EA).
In the EA, Commission staff analyzes the potential environmental effects of licensing the project and concludes that issuing a new license for the project, with appropriate environmental protective measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
