Newburgh Hydro, LLC, Uniontown Hydro, LLC; Notice of Availability 
of Environmental Assessment

    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) 
regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office 
of Energy Projects has reviewed the applications for original licenses 
for the proposed Uniontown Lock and Dam Hydroelectric Project (FERC 
Project No. 12958-002) and Newburgh Lock and Dam Hydroelectric Project 
(FERC Project No. 12962-002). The projects would be located on the Ohio 
River at existing U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's locks and dams. The 
Uniontown Project would be located at the John T. Myers Locks and Dam, 
in Union County, Kentucky and Posey County, Indiana. The Newburgh 
Project would be located at the Newburgh Locks and Dam, in Henderson 
County, Kentucky and Warrick County, Indiana.
    Staff have prepared a multi-project environmental assessment (EA), 
which analyzes the potential environmental effects of licensing the 
projects, and have concluded that licensing the projects, with 
appropriate environmental protection measures, 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 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
