Questions & Answers
What issues did the subcommittee examine?
The subcommittee worked to identify any new information, issues, concerns and opportunities that had not been addressed in earlier environmental analysis of the project, and to evaluate modifications to routing options analyzed in the April 2013 Final EIS for the project. In addition, the subcommittee evaluated the mitigation and enhancement portfolio proposed by the companies requesting authorization to site the project on BLM-managed lands (Rocky Mountain Power and Idaho Power).
How did the RAC decide to proceed after the subcommittee
presented its reports?
The RAC accepted the subcommittee's two reports and forwarded
them to the BLM.
Have any decisions been made on where segments 8 or 9 will be sited?
No. A decision on whether to grant ROWs for these segments and their exact locations will come only after the BLM completes its NEPA process.
