Public Asked to Comment on Powerline Right-Of-Way
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody and Billings Field Offices are seeking public comment on an environmental assessment concerning a right-of-way proposal submitted by Beartooth Electric Cooperative Inc.
The cooperative has applied for an electric powerline right-of-way grant across public lands in the Clark, Wyo., and Belfry, Mont. areas. The project proposal involves rigging an above ground 69 kV transmission power line for approximately 21 miles, of which 10.3 miles would cross federal land. The powerline would bring power from the existing Belfry power substation to a new substation in the Clark area.
The public is encouraged to provide comments concerning the environmental analysis of the proposal. Comments will be accepted through March 17, 2008.
The document is available at http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/cyfodocs/beartooth_powerline.html
Comments should be sent to:
BLM, Cody Field Office
Attn: Belfry to Clark Powerline Project
