Hydropower Licensing has reviewed the application for a new license for 
the existing Kern River No. 1 Project. The project is located near 
Bakersfield, in Kern County, California.
    On July 31, 1997, the Commission staff issued and distributed to 
all parties a draft environmental assessment on the project, and 
requested that comments be filed with the Commission within 30 days. At 
the request of the Fish and Wildlife Service the comment period was 
extended an additional 30 days to September 30, 1997. Comments were 
filed and are addressed in the final environmental assessment (FEA).
    The FEA 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 FEA are available for review in the Public Reference 
Room, Room 2A, of the Commission's offices at 888 First Street, N.E., 
Washington, D.C. 20426.
David P. Boergers,
Acting Secretary.
