The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) needs to maintain and upgrade its existing communication site located at Marys Peak, approximately 12 miles southwest of Corvallis, in Benton County, Oregon. Some equipment is outdated and unstable and needs to be replaced. The BPA communication site needs a more reliable back-up power source due to potential power outages. BPA communication network is essential for the safety and reliability of BPA’s power transmission system. The existing Marys Peak BPA communication site provides for real-time voice communication, via VHF radio, between BPA’s dispatch and control centers and the BPA field crews working in the region. This communication network allows for critical information exchange during emergencies, safe and timely power restoration during outages, and supports control of the larger regional BPA power transmission network in the Pacific Northwest. BPA will prepare an environmental assessment under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to identify potential alternatives, analyze potential impacts of each alternative, and identify mitigation measures that would help avoid or minimize those impacts. BPA is accepting scoping comments for the EA through Dec. 2, 2016.
