Sacramento Area Voltage Support
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
The Sacramento Municipal Utilities District (SMUD) and Western Area Power Administration (Western) propose to construct and operate approximately 31 to 38 miles of new, double-circuit, 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line between Western's O'Banon Substation and the area just south of SMUD's Elverta Substation and reconstruct SMUD's existing 230 kV/115 kV transmission line between SMUD's Elverta and Natomas substations. The proposed Project would be constructed using three route segments in Sutter, Sacramento, and Placer counties. Segments 1 and 3 are common to each alternative. Seven potential alternative alignments were identified for Segment 2 that would connect Segment 1 to Segment 3 and only one would be chosen for the preferred alternative.
