Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

[Project No. 7518-018]

Erie Boulevard Hydropower, L.P. and Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe; 
Notice of Availability of Environmental Assessment

    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 Energy Projects has reviewed Erie Boulevard Hydropower, L.P. and 
Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe's (licensees) Environmental Analysis, filed 
with the Commission on April 28, 2016, regarding the proposed surrender 
of project license for the Hogansburg Hydroelectric Project. The 
project is located on the St Regis River in Franklin County, New York. 
The project does not occupy any federal lands.
    After independent review of the licensees' Environmental Analysis, 
Commission staff has decided to adopt it and issue it as staff's 
Environmental Assessment (EA). The EA analyzes the potential 
environmental impacts of decommissioning project facilities, including 
dam removal, and the surrender of the project license. The EA includes 
proposed mitigation measures and concludes that granting the proposed 
surrender would not constitute a major federal action that would 
significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
    A copy of the EA is on file with the Commission and is available 
for public inspection. The EA may be viewed on the Commission's Web 
site at http://www.ferc.gov using the ``eLibrary'' link. Enter the
