BPA is proposing to rebuild 54 miles of its Creston-Bell 115-kilovolt transmission line that runs through Lincoln and Spokane counties, Wash. The wood poles and other equipment on the line, which was originally built in 1942, have gradually deteriorated due to exposure to the elements.

This line is an important component of BPA’s transmission system in eastern Washington. It allows BPA to provide reliable and safe transmission service to local utilities that serve you. BPA will prepare an environmental assessment to consider potential environmental impacts of rebuilding this line as well as a No Action alternative that evaluates impacts of not rebuilding the line. As we prepare the environmental assessment, we may study how each alternative would impact land use, plants and animals, water resources, erosion and soils, effects to local community, recreational uses and cultural resources.
