​Kangley-Echo Lake Transmission Line
King County, Washington (DOE/EIS-0317)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) proposed constructing a new 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission line from a tap point on an existing 500-kV line near Kangley, Washington, to BPA's Echo Lake Substation. The nine mile route would be constructed next to an existing 500-kV line. Five miles of the route is through the Cedar River Municipal Watershed. In addition, Echo Lake Substation would be expanded about three acres to the east and new equipment installed to accommodate the new line. The project is needed to improve transmission system reliability and to enhance BPA's ability to meet requirements of the Columbia River Treaty with Canada.

CURRENT STATUS:

The BPA completed an environmental impact statement (EIS) and issued a record of decision (ROD) in June 2003, to construct the proposed Kangley-Echo Lake Transmission Line Project in King County, Washington. The project was completed in late December, 2003.
