Mead-Phoenix 500kV DC Transmission Line Project, Volume 1: Objectives, Procedures and Results

Author(s): Wirth Environmental Services

Year: 1983


Western Area Power Administration (Western), Salt River Project (SRP), Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA) and M-S-R Public Power Agency (Modesto-Santa Clara-Redding) propose to construct, operate and maintain a ±500kV direct current (DC) transmission line from the Phoenix area in Arizona to the Mead Substation near Boulder City, Nevada (see Figure 2-1). The proposal includes a ±500kV DC transmission line, two terminal facilities, associated communication facilities, and ground electrodes.

An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality; the Department of Energy (DOE), the Federal agency responsible for consideration of the proposed action; and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and National Park Service (NPS) of the Department of Interior, the Federal agencies responsible for granting rights-of-way across public land. Western is the lead agency for the proposed action, in which the NPS and the BLM participated as cooperating agencies to fulfill the requirements of the NEPA.
