Meriden, in New Haven County, Connecticut, and has prepared an 
Environmental Assessment (EA). In the EA, Commission staff analyzes the 
potential environmental effects of the project and concludes that

measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly 
affecting 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 also be viewed on the Commission's
