Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

[Project No. 2985-008 Massachusetts]

Onyx Specialty Papers, Inc; Notice of Availability of 
Environmental Assessment

    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission or FERC's) 
regulations, 18 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 380 (Order No. 
486, 52 FR 47897), Commission staff has reviewed the Onyx Specialty 
Papers, Inc.'s application for surrender of project license for the 
Willow Mill Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 2985) and has 
prepared an environmental assessment (EA). The project is located on 
the Housatonic River, in the Town of Lee, Berkshire County, 
    The EA contains the Commission staff's analysis of the potential 
environmental effects of the proposed surrender of license and 
concludes that the proposal would not constitute a major federal action 
that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
    A copy of the EA is available for review at the Commission in the 
Public Reference Room 2-A of the Commission's offices at 888 First 
Street NE., Washington, DC 20426. The EA also may be viewed on the 
Commission's Internet 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. Additional information 
about the project is available from the Commission's Web site using the
