ACTION: Notice of availability of Finding of No Significant Impact. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has prepared an Environmental assessment (EA) for the Webber Pond Fish Passage Project, Vassalboro, Maine. NRCS has found that the installation of an Alaska Steep Pass Fishway, American eel passage ladder and water control structure would not result in a significant impact on the quality of the human environment, particularly when focusing on the significant adverse effects that National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is intended to help decision makers avoid and mitigate. Therefore, NRCS has prepared a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) in compliance with the (NEPA), as amended, and gives notice that an environmental impact statement is not being prepared. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Single copies of the EA and FONSI documents, may be obtained by contacting Amanda Burton, Soil Conservationist, USDA–NRCS, 21 Enterprise Drive, Suite 1, Augusta, ME 04330, (207) 622–7847 ext. 3.
