Summary: The proposed Project covers the request ofHarney Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Harney Electric) to amend right-of-way (ROW) OR 02028 to renovate approximately 2.3 miles of existing overhead power line by replacing an existing overhead power line with a buried power line. 1.9 miles ofthe replacement power line project length would be buried within the ROW boundaries presently authorized by OR 02028. The remaining 0.40 miles ofreplacement line project length would be buried within the footprint ofthe existing two-track primitive roadway (used by Harney Electric to service the power line and by recreationists) that generally follows the existing overhead power line's route but detours in places from the pole line's route to avoid rocky outcroppings that impede travel. The existing line length to be buried is presently strung across 33 Douglas fir wooden power poles each having a height of 34 feet above ground. The Project would temporarily disturb an area ofup to 2.3 mile length by two feet width, or approximately 0.60 acre, due to the need to trench a line channel to hold the buried line.
