The Bonneville Power Administration is proposing to rebuild the Creston – Bell 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line located in Lincoln and Spokane counties, Washington.  This 54-mile wood pole transmission line was built in the early 1940s.  Most of the structures, conductor, and associated structural components (cross arms, insulators, and dampers) are physically worn and need to be replaced.  BPA is proposing to rebuild this transmission line to maintain reliable electrical service and to ensure public and worker safety.

BPA conducted an environmental review of the proposed project as required by the National Environmental Policy Act and prepared a preliminary Environmental Assessment. The EA is informed by public comments and opinions received during the scoping phase of the environmental review.  The preliminary EA describes the proposed project; evaluates the no action alternative, potential environmental impacts, and describes proposed mitigation measures that could be used to avoid or minimize those impacts.  We invite you to review and comment on the preliminary EA for the proposed project.  The comment period closes on April 25, 2012. To learn more about the project go to:  or contact Stephanie Breeden toll free at 800-622-4519; directly at 503-230-5192; or by e-mail
