Xcel Transmission Line

About the Project

The Bureau of Land Management San Luis Valley Field Office, in cooperation with the Pike San Isabel National Forest, is seeking public comments on a draft environmental assessment authorizing Xcel Energy to rebuild three existing transmission lines.

The transmission lines are nearing the end of their serviceable life and would be rebuilt within or immediately adjacent to their existing locations. The transmission lines cross a variety of public and private lands in portions of Alamosa, Chaffee, Rio Grande, and Saguache counties.
