PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

In June 2000, Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) issued the Transmission System Vegetation Management Program Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that considered alternative ways to manage vegetation along BPA transmission facilities. In July 2000, the BPA Administrator issued a Record of Decision (ROD) that selected alternatives from the Final EIS for various components of vegetation management and set the policy and direction for managing vegetation at and along BPA transmission facilities, including in rights-of-way and access roads throughout the service area. BPA adopted a vegetation management program direction that is cost-effective, sensitive to environmental concerns, responsive to public and agency comment, and consistent with integrated vegetation management strategies.
