Financial Reserves Workshop

BPA held a financial reserves workshop on July 16.  In these meetings BPA defined financials reserves, described the historical context for BPA’s financial reserves, recent developments in this area, and some new challenges and opportunities. Financial reserves have played a key role in BPA’s Treasury Payment Probability (TPP) standard. BPA is considering the potential benefits of creating a financial reserves policy that would be coordinated with BPA’s TPP standard.

Hot Springs-Anaconda Transmission Line Rebuild Project

BPA is proposing to rebuild approximately 120 miles of the Hot Springs-Rattlesnake, Rattlesnake-Garrison, and Garrison-Anaconda 230-kilovolt lines (Hot Springs-Anaconda, collectively) in Sanders, Lake, Missoula, Granite, Powell, and Deer Lodge counties, Montana.

BPA has prepared a draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that describes the project and why it is needed, discusses the environmental impacts the project would create, and lists the mitigation measures that would lessen or eliminate those impacts. The proposed project would include:


• Replacement of wood pole structures, cross arms, cross braces, guy wires, anchors, insulator assemblies, switches, and overhead conductor.
• Access road improvement and some new access roads would be acquired or constructed where existing access is not available.
• Overhead ground wire would be added along much of the line and an existing fiber optic cable would be replaced along the entire 150 miles of line.

BPA will hold three informal, open-house public meetings to answer questions and accept comments on the draft Environmental Assessment. There will not be a formal presentation, so you may come any time during the meeting.

Salem-Albany Transmission Line Rebuild Draft Environmental Assessment

BPA is accepting comments on the draft Environmental Assessment for the proposed Salem-Albany Transmission Line Rebuild, in Polk, Benton, Linn, and Marion counties, Oregon. The proposed project is needed due to the age and deterioration of the two lines.

The draft Environmental Assessment analyzes the potential environmental consequences of the proposed project that would include:

• replacing all components of the two transmission lines, including the wood poles and conductors (existing fiber on both lines would remain),
• activities such as improving, acquiring, and building access roads and removing trees.


BPA will hold two informal, open-house public meetings to answer questions and accept comments on the draft Environmental Assessment. There will not be a formal presentation, so you may come any time during the meeting.

Hooper Springs Transmission Project Supplemental Draft EIS

BPA is accepting comments on the supplemental draft environmental impact statement (SDEIS) for the proposed Hooper Springs Transmission Project in Caribou County, Idaho. The project is needed to improve system reliability in the southern portion of Lower Valley Energy’s (LVE) transmission system and to address ongoing load growth in southeast Idaho and northwestern Wyoming. The project would include building a new 115-kilovolt transmission line that would extend from BPA’s proposed Hooper Springs Substation near the city of Soda Springs, Idaho, to either an existing Lower Valley Energy substation or a proposed BPA connection facility in northeastern Caribou County. 

BPA released a supplemental draft EIS May 1, 2014 for public review and comment. An open-house public meeting was held on May 27, 2014 in Soda Springs, ID to answer questions and accept comments on the scope of the supplemental draft EIS.
