Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
[Project No. 11243-002 Alaska]

Whitewater Engineering Corporation; Notice of Availability of 
Draft Environmental Assessment

October 8, 1997.
    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 FR 47897), the Office 
of Hydropower Licensing has reviewed the application for an original 
license for the Power Creek Project, and has prepared a Draft 
Environmental Assessment (DEA) for the project. The project is located 
near Cordova, Alaska. The DEA contains the staff's analysis of the 
potential environmental impacts of the project and has concluded 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.
    Copies of the DEA are available for review in the Public Reference 
Room, Room 2A, of the Commission's offices at 888 First Street NE., 
Washington, DC 20426.
    Any comments should be filed within 30 days from the date of this 
notice and should be addressed to Lois D. Cashell, Secretary, Federal 
Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 
20426. For further information, contact Michael Henry,
