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 an application submitted by Green Island Power Authority and Albany Engineering Corporation to amend its Green Island Hydroelectric Project license (FERC No. 13) and has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the project. The Green Island Project is located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Green Island-Troy Lock and Dam on the Hudson River in Albany County, New York. The project occupies federal land under the jurisdiction of the Corps.
The EA contains staff's analysis of the potential environmental effects of the proposed action and concludes that approval of the amendment application, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
The EA may be viewed on the Commission's website at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
