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.
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.
