Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket nu,ber p-2659: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) regulations, 18 CFR Part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 F.R. 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for surrender of license for the Powerdale Hydroelectric Project. The project is located on the Hood River, in Hood River County, Oregon. There are no federal lands within the project boundary although the lower half of the bypassed reach and the powerhouse are located within the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The Commission staff has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) on the license surrender. The EA contains the staff's analysis of the potential environmental impacts of decommissioning the project and removing most of the project facilities. In the EA, staff concludes that surrendering the license, with appropriate environmental protection measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
