EIS-0474: Southline Transmission Line Project; Arizona and New Mexico


The Bureau of Land Management and Western Area Power Administration are preparing an EIS as joint lead agencies to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the proposed Southline Transmission Project and address associated potential land use plan amendments. The project would consist of a new 225-mile transmission line between existing substations at Afton, New Mexico, and Apache, Arizona, and improvements to approximately 130 miles of existing transmission lines between the Apache and Saguaro, Arizona substations. DOE's Western Area Power Administration issued a Record of Decision for the project on April 14, 2016.
