BLM Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Transmission Line in Southwestern Utah


Cedar City—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cedar City Field Office seeks public comment on an Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzing the potential impacts of the proposed 138 kV Cameron to Milford Transmission Line Project.  Rocky Mountain Power proposes constructing, operating, and maintaining a 19-mile overhead transmission line between the existing Cameron and Milford Substations in Beaver County, Utah.

The EA is available for public review and comment on the Environmental Notification Bulletin Board (ENBB) at:  https://www.blm.gov/ut/enbb/; search for project name “Cameron.”

Written comments will be accepted by letter or email until November 29, 2013.  The dates of any public meetings or other public involvement activities will be publicly announced at least 15 days in advance.  Please note that the most useful comments are those that contain new technical or scientific information relevant to the proposed action.  Comments should be as specific as possible.  Comments which contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response, but may be considered in the BLM decision-making process.  Please reference “Cameron to Milford - 138 kV Transmission Line Project EA” in your correspondence.
