Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
[Project No. 2696-004]

Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation; Notice of Availability of 
Environmental Assessment

June 1, 1998.
    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Regulations, 18 CFR Part 
380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Commission's Office of Hydropower 
Licensing has reviewed the license surrender application for the 
Stuyvesant Falls Project, No. 2696-004. The Stuyvesant Falls Project is 
located on Kinderhook Creek in Columbia County, New York. The licensee 
is applying for a surrender of the license due to leaks in the 
pipelines that are uneconomical to repair for safe and effective 
operation of the project. A Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) was 
prepared for the application. The FEA finds that approving the 
application would not constitute a major federal action significantly 
affecting the quality of the human environment.
    Copies of the FEA are available for review in the Commission's 
Reference and Information Center, Room 2A, 888 First Street, N.E., 
Washington, D.C. 20426. For further information, please contact Ms. 
Hillary Berlin, at (202) 219-0038.
David P. Boergers,
Acting Secretary.
