BLM seeks public comment on proposed transmission line in southwestern Utah

CEDAR CITY – The Bureau of Land Management Cedar City Field Office seeks public comment on an Environmental Assessment analyzing the potential impacts of the proposed 138-kilovolt 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.

The EA is available for public review and comment on the Environmental Notification Bulletin Board – enter project name “Cameron.”

Written comments will be accepted by letter or email until Nov. 29. 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.

Written comments may be mailed or emailed using the following:

    The Environmental Notification Bulletin Board link leads to an error message. Also, can you publish a map of the proposed route for this project?

      The link is adjusted, Julie A. You will need to enter the project name “Cameron” to reach the webpages on this proposed project. There are many maps, overview and detailed with particulars, provided in the appendices linked at the bottom of the Cameron project page, see Appendices C, F, G, I, as well as the Cameron to Milford POD. Following your suggestion we will insert the overview map showing the proposed location.
      Thank you so much 🙂
