In mid- November BPA released the draft environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed Northern Mid- Columbia Joint Project. If constructed, this proposed 230-kV transmission line and associated facilities would be located in the northern mid-Columbia area of Washington State, south of Wenatchee.  The draft EA describes the project and why it is needed, discusses the environmental impacts the project could create, and describes mitigation measures that would avoid or lessen those impacts.  

BPA welcomes public comments on the draft EA beginning November 17. Interested parties should send comments on the draft EA to BPA by January 14, 2015.  All comments will be posted in their entirety on the project website.
