The non-project use would include a water withdrawal of 15.0 million gallons per day for public drinking water, and a conveyance of 0.23 acres of project property along with a 40-foot wide ingress and egress easement for the purpose of constructing a raw-water pumping station and associated facilities. The water withdrawal would involve an inter-basin transfer from the Saluda River basin for use and discharge into the Lower Savannah River basin and the Edisto River basin. The EA evaluates the environmental impacts that would result from approving the licensee’s proposed water withdrawal and the construction of associated facilities. Some land disturbance and lake-bottom excavation would occur, but impacts to the terrestrial and aquatic resources are expected to be minor and short term. The EA finds that approval of the application for non-project use of project lands and waters would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. A copy of the EA is attached to a Commission order titled ‘‘Order Modifying and Approving Non-Project Use of Project Lands and Waters’’ issued June 9, 2006 and is available for review at the Commission or may be viewed on the Commission’s Web site at http:// www.ferc.gov using the ‘‘eLibrary’’ link.
