Proposed Action

The Proponent proposes to construct, operate, and maintain a 69-mile long, single-circuit 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission line (which would be operated initially at 345kV) from the existing Mona Substation near the community of Mona in Juab County, Utah, to a proposed Mona Annex Substation (to be located south of the existing Mona Substation) that would be designed to accommodate 500, 345, and 138,V transmission lines, then on to a proposed future Limber Substation (to be located in the Tooele Valley in Utah), also designed to accommodate 500, 345, and 138kV transmission lines. Two double-circuit 345kV lines are proposed from the Limber Substation. One line would extend 31 miles to the existing Oquirrh Substation in West Jordan, Utah, and the second line would extend 45 miles to the existing Terminal Substation in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Permanent facilities would include: A proposed 500/345/138kV substation (Mona Annex) near the existing Mona Substation; A future 500/345/138kV substation (Limber) southwest of the Tooele Army Depot; A single-circuit 500kV transmission line (initially operated at 345kV) that connects the existing Mona Substation to the proposed Mona Annex Substation, then on to the future Limber Substation, which would require a 250-foot-wide right-of-way; A double-circuit 345kV transmission line from the future Limber Substation to the existing Oquirrh Substation, which would require a 150-foot-wide right-of-way; A double-circuit 345kV transmission line from the future Limber Substation to the existing Terminal Substation, which would require a 150-foot-wide right-of-way; Communication regeneration facilities associated with the transmission lines and substation; New access roads to all transmission line structures were there is no existing access.

Conditions of Approval

The decision is conditioned on implementation of mitigation measures and stipulations that are included in the right-of-way grant and listed in the Final Plan of Development (POD). The Final POD details the methods and procedures that would be used in construction of the Project. The Final POD includes instructions to contractors, construction crews, agency personnel, resource inspectors, and monitors for construction, operation, and maintenance of the Project. The Final POD also contains a Project description, resource protection measures and best management practices (BMPs); specifies environmental compliance field activities; provides a description of construction and operation activities; specifies land use and access requirements; and provides mapping of sensitive resources.

The POD is a two volume document. Copies of the POD are available at the BLM Salt Lake Field Office and Fillmore Field Office for public viewing.
