Saguaro-Tucson Vegetation Removal
CX(s) Applied: B1.3
Date: 03/30/2010
Location(s): Pinal County, Arizona
Office(s): Western Area Power Administration-Desert Southwest Region

Western proposes to remove vegetation under its existing Saguaro-Tucson 115-kilovolt transmission line, within Western's existing right-of-way between Structures 5/3 and 6/3 in Pinal County, Arizona. We plan on using existing access roads to the vegetation removal areas. Western will be using a front-end loader with a cutting & shredding attachment to remove the vegetation. This work is necessary to maintain the safety and reliability of the bulk electrical system.
