2018-14763. Notice of Availability of Final Environmental Assessment; Birch Power Company  

  • Start Preamble

    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 application for original license for the Demopolis Lock and Dam Hydroelectric Project on the Tombigbee River and has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) for the project.

    The Demopolis Lock and Dam Hydroelectric Project would be located at an existing lock and dam owned by Start Printed Page 32105the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the Tombigbee River, west of the city of Demopolis in Marengo and Sumter Counties, Alabama. The project would occupy 23 acres of federal land.

    The FEA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the project and concludes that licensing 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 FEA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's website at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
