Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for a new license for the 4,320-kilowatt (kW) Stuyvesant Falls Hydroelectric Project located on Kinderhook Creek in Columbia County, New York, and prepared a draft Environmental Assessment (draft EA). In the draft EA, Commission staff analyzes the potential environmental effects of relicensing the project and concludes that issuing a new license for the project, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
A copy of the draft EA is on file with the Commission and is available for public inspection. The draft EA may also be viewed on the Commission's Web site at

Comments on the draft EA should be filed within 30 days from the date of this notice. Comments may be filed electronically via the Internet. See 18
