DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

[Project No. 2558-029]


Green Mountain Power Corporation; Notice of Availability of Draft 
Environmental Assessment

    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) 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 21.595-
megawatt (MW) Otter Creek Hydroelectric Project (Commission Project No. 
2558-029) and has prepared a draft environmental assessment (draft EA). 
The project consists of three developments (Proctor, Beldens, and 
Huntington Falls) located on Otter Creek in Addison and Rutland 
counties, Vermont.
    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 available for review at the Commission in 
the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site 
at www.ferc.gov using the ``eLibrary'' link. Enter the docket number, 
excluding the last three digits, in the docket number field to access 
the document. For assistance, contact Commission Online Support at
