EA - Environmental Assessment

Document Description
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Western Area Power Administration (Western) proposes to replace approximately 52 miles of existing wood H-frame and specialized wood pole structures associated with the Parker-Blythe No. 1 161-kV Transmission Line from Headgate Rock Dam near Parker, Arizona to the Blythe Substation in Blythe, California. For this replacement portion of the Parker-Blythe No. 1 161-kV Transmission Line, referred to here as the Blythe-Headgate Rock 161-kV Transmission Line, a segment will be rerouted around the culturally sensitive area known as Black Point Mesa. This reroute would affect less than one mile of the project alignment.
