In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR part 380, the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the applications for licenses for the Piedmont (FERC Project No. 2428-007), Upper Pelzer (FERC Project No. 10254-026), and Lower Pelzer (FERC Project No. 10253-032) Hydroelectric Projects located on the Saluda River in Anderson and Greenville Counties, South Carolina, and has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (FEA).
The FEA contains staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the projects and concludes that licensing the projects, 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 FEA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room, or may be viewed on the Commission's website at www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
