Start Preamble

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 Code of Federal Regulations part 380, Commission staff has reviewed the Kodiak Electric Association, Inc.'s application for amendment of license for the Terror Lake Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 2743) and has prepared an environmental assessment (EA). The project is located on the Terror and Kizhuyak Rivers in Kodiak Island Borough, Alaska. The project occupies federal lands administered by the U.S. Coast Guard, Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service within the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge.

The EA contains Commission staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of the proposed construction of two diversion dams within the Upper Hidden Basin Creek drainage, a 1.7-mile-long tunnel and canal system diverting water to Terror Lake, and a 4-mile-long spur road, 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, or it may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at using the e-Library link.
