 Signing Ceremony for Energy Transmission Line in Beaver County

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM)-Utah Cedar City Field Office, along with Beaver County and Rocky Mountain Power will host a signing ceremony for the new Cameron to Milford energy transmission line. The event, held at the Milford City Office, will begin promptly at 2 P.M. on Monday Aug. 25.

The signing authorizes the construction of the Cameron to Milford–138 kV Transmission Line on public land in Beaver County. The single-circuit overhead transmission line, about 25 miles long, will be located between existing substations in Cameron and Milford. The line will provide power redundancy and additional capacity to Beaver County residents, which should alleviate past issues with disruption of electrical service. Currently, residences rely exclusively on a 46 kV transmission system that lacks the capacity to meet the combination of growing demand and provide a back-up transmission line, should the first line fail.

Check out the Environmental Assessment of the transmission line.

 


 

Old Spanish Trail Recreation Plan Open House

On August 19, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)-Utah Cedar City Field Office invites the public to attend an open house for a recreational Old Spanish Trail plan that extends (miles?) from Panguitch to Enterprise. The event takes place at the Southern Utah University (SUU) Gerald R. Sherratt Library (Room 002), from 2 p.m.– 5 p.m..

Working in concert with the the local chapter of the Old Spanish Trail Association, Iron County Tourism, State Institutional Trust Land Administration and BLM, the plan for a recreational trail that follows the historical Old Spanish Trail was designed by student interns from SUU and Utah State University. The trail design includes informational kiosks, trailheads, and motorized and nonmotorized routes. The trail also features a stop at a soon to be constructed Old Spanish Trail Museum in the City of Enoch.

Welcome to the Bureau of Land Management Cedar City Field Office 
The Cedar City Field Office (CCFO) is located in southwest Utah in the Great Basin region.  Characterized by vast acres of sagebrush and pinyon-juniper clad foothills, the region offers a variety of landscapes ranging from salt desert shrub flats to high mountains with riparian, aspen, and bristlecone pine communities.  Principal mountain ranges are the Minerals, the Wah Wahs, and the Indian Peak ranges.  The Field office is home to a variety of species including the greater sage grouse, the Utah prairie dog, the Southwest Desert Elk Herd, and the Sulphur Wild Horse Herd - a breed of horse noted by its distinct markings and Spanish genetics.

The Field Office is generally quite remote and offers a wide variety of dispersed recreation. The Parowan Gap, a deep, narrow gorge west of Summit, Utah, is renowned as a site of great importance to the Paiute Indians and others for many reasons, including the Fremont era petroglyphs etched on the canyon walls. The Cedar City Field Office manages approximately 2.2 million acres of public lands. In addition, the Cedar City office lends support services to other Southern Utah field offices in program areas including fire, Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation (ESR) fuels treatments and a host of other functions.
