Proposed Action

The applicant is proposing to construct, operate, and maintain a 138 kilovolt (kV) overhead, single circuit, primary transmission line and expand the Cameron Substation on private land near Beaver, Utah. The requested right-of-way (ROW) would total 15.3 miles in length, of which 12.0 miles, covering 122.8 acres, would be on BLM administered land. The route would extend from the Cameron Substation near Beaver, Utah, in a northwesterly direction over the Mineral Mountains, terminating at PacifiCorp’s Milford Substation. The ROW would begin at PacifiCorp’s existing interconnected system, approximately 2.9 miles northwest of Adamsville, Utah. It would extend west, north of Pass Road, where it would intersect with Pass Road, near the base of the Mineral Mountains. Over the Mineral Mountains, the ROW would roughly follow Pass Road. On the west side of the Mineral Mountains, the majority of the ROW would be parallel to and south of Pass Road, and would intersect Pass Road near Milford. The transmission line would also parallel an existing power line along the majority of this portion of the route.

The route of the Proposed Action alignment would physically separate the proposed 138 kV transmission line from the existing 46 kV system such that simultaneous damage to both systems would be unlikely, resulting in redundancy in the system.

Conditions of Approval

The decision is conditioned on fulfilling applicable environmental commitments described in the Proposed Action of the EA and will be subject to the ROW Grant Terms and Conditions, Special Stipulations, and Plan of Development (POD).

Monitoring, as described in the POD pages 14-17, would be conducted to insure compliance with the Decision Record and attached supporting documents. The POD is included in the ROW Grant as Appendix B. Special Stipulations are included in the ROW Grant as Appendix C.

Data Completion Notes

For copies of the ROW Grant Terms and Conditions, Special Stipulations, and Plan of Development, contact the Cedar City Field Office at: 176 East DL Sargent Drive, Cedar City, Utah 84721 or call 435-865-3000.
