EIS-0451: Hooper Springs Transmission Project, Caribou County, Idaho


Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is preparing an EIS to assess the potential environmental impacts of a proposed new 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line that would extend from BPA's proposed Hooper Springs Substation near Soda Springs, Idaho, to either an existing Lower Valley Energy (LVE) substation or a proposed BPA connection facility that would connect with LVE's existing transmission system in northeastern Caribou County. The proposed new transmission line would be about 22 to 33 miles depending on the route alternative or option.
