EIS-0285-SA-128: Supplement Analysis

Transmission System Vegetation Management Program

BPA proposes to remove unwanted vegetation along the right-ofway, access roads and around tower structures along the subject transmission line corridors. Approximately 5 miles of right-of-way will be treated using selective and non-selective methods that include hand cutting, mowing and herbicide treatments. Approximately 0.5 mile of access road will be cleared using selective and non-selective methods that include hand cutting, mowing and herbicide treatments. Tower sites will be treated using selective and non-selective methods that include hand cutting, mowing and herbicide treatments. Vegetation management is required for unimpeded operation and maintenance of the subject transmission line.
