Environmental Impact Statements (EISs)

Final environmental impact statement (FEIS) evaluates relicensing the Niagara Project on the Niagara River in New York (P-2216-066)
Issued: December 29, 2006

The FEIS addresses the effects of the Niagara Project, located on the Niagara River in Niagara County, New York and contains staff responses to comments on the draft environmental impact statement. The New York Power Authority is the applicant for re-license.

Staff recommended measures include several habitat improvement projects for fish and wildlife, funding to reduce the project's effect on the City of Niagara Falls' water treatment system, and recreation improvements.

Staff concludes that relicensing the Niagara Project as proposed with staff modifications would be best adapted for the proper use, conservation, and development of the Niagara River.
