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.
