CX-004464: Categorical Exclusion Determination

Central Ferry Area Radio Communications Project
CX(s) Applied: B4.6
Date: 11/01/2010
Location(s): Franklin County, Washington
Office(s): Bonneville Power Administration

Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) proposes to install additional communication equipment at five existing BPA facilities in southeastern Washington. The proposed action would occur at two existing radio sites and three existing substations located in Franklin, Garfield, Whitman, and Walla Walla counties, Washington. The project would involve installation of a new 150-foot radio tower and communication building at both of the existing radio sites, and a new 25-foot radio antenna tower at each of the existing substation yards. The proposed communications upgrades are required to maintain BPA?s ability to monitor and operate the transmission system in the region.
