Energy Gateway South Transmission Line Project

FY 2014

The Bureau of Land Management is actively seeking the public’s involvement to help make a decision on a route for the transmission line.  You can help by providing thoughtful comments aimed at this objective. The comments most useful in evaluating the alternatives and shaping the decision are those that offer:

  • Specific reasons why a particular route segment would or would not work.
  • Reasonable suggestions or alternatives that would help accomplish the objective
  • Suggestions to improve or modify analysis of the alternatives in the EIS.
  • Suggestions to clarify the analysis or results presented in the EIS.
  • New information relevant to the analysis that has not been considered in the EIS.
