You are invited to review and comment on the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Bonneville Power Administration’s Hooper Springs Transmission Project in Caribou County, Idaho. The draft EIS describes the proposed project and the environmental effects expected from construction, operation, and maintenance of the proposed transmission lines and new substation.
The project is needed to improve voltage stability on the transmission grid to meet future load growth in southeast Idaho and northwestern Wyoming. Your comments on the draft EIS will help BPA refine the environmental analysis and decide whether to build the project.
