Download as PDF 19884 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 74 / Tuesday, April 18, 2006 / Notices [Project No. 2503–086—South Carolina] regulations, 18 CFR part 380 (Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897), the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed an application for non-project use of project lands and waters at the Keowee-Toxaway Hydroelectric Project (FERC No. 2503), and has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed nonproject use. The project is located on the Little and Keowee Rivers in Oconee and Pickens Counties, South Carolina. In the application, Duke Power (licensee) requests Commission authorization to lease two parcels of project land to Crescent Communities S.C, LLC, and the Waterside Crossing Owners Association, Inc. (applicants) for the construction and operation of: (1) Two marinas consisting of a total of 12 cluster docks with 117 total boat slips; (2) a boat pump-out station; and (3) an irrigation intake. The proposed facilities would serve the residents of Waterside Crossing subdivision, located on a cove on Lake Keowee in Oconee County, South Carolina. No dredging is proposed for this development. The EA contains the Commission staff’s analysis of the probable environmental impacts of the proposal, and concludes that approving the licensee’s application, with staff’s recommended environmental measures, would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. The EA is attached to a Commission order titled ‘‘Order Modifying and Approving Non-Project Use of Project Lands and Waters,’’ which was issued April 7, 2006, and is available for review and reproduction at the Commission’s Public Reference Room, located at 888 First Street, NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426.
