Environmental assessment available for Historic Harrisville dam

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 47879), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed the application for exemption from licensing for the Cheshire Mills Hydroelectric Project, to be located on Nubanusit Brook, in the town of Harrisville, Cheshire County, New Hampshire, and has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA). In the EA, Commission staff analyzes the potential environmental effects of the project and concludes that issuing an exemption for the project, with appropriate environmental measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
