BPA continues to conduct surveys, gather more information and look at the landscape to help determine our final project design and further impacts a new line, towers and access roads would have if BPA decides to build this project. Throughout the next few seasons, you may see BPA or contract personnel on existing rights-of-way and visiting properties that landowners have given us permission to enter.
December project update available BPA has been reviewing comments received on the draft EIS and our preferred alternative. Project team members and contractors have been meeting with landowners and conducting field work.
In the past few months, BPA and its contractors have been studying potential impacts within the project area and determining how we can reduce or minimize these impacts. BPA only conducts surveys in areas where we have our own land rights, public access or permission to enter private property. Our latest newsletter highlights some of this work.
