Document Description
The proposed project as approved by the California Public Utilities Commission involves the construction of the Final Environmentally Superior Southern Route Alternative, which would include a 500kV transmission line from the Imperial Valley Substation to a new substation southeast of the town of Alpine, then continuing with a 230 kV transmission line with both overhead and underground components to the Sycamore Canyon Substation. Upgradess to the existing transmission system west of Sycamore Canyon would also occur. The project would involve extension of the 500 kV transmission line across a protion of McCain Valley Conservation Camp. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) would grant a Right of Entry for geotechnical testing and a Utilitiy Easment for a 200 ft wide corridor ~1200 ft in length for construction of transmission line facilities. The project, as described and analyzed in the project EIR/EIS, includes improvements on CDCR land that would include an access road, one transmission structure (lattice tower) and 500 kV overhead transmission lines. Mitigation measures as identified in the required Statement of Findings for San Diego Gas & Electric Company's Sunrise Powerlink Project (Applications A.05-12-014 and A.06-08-010) Final EIR/EIS and Draft Land Use Amendment have been incorporated as required into the project's Mitigation Monitoring Program as a condition of project approval. CDCR in its capacity as a REsponsible Agency is not required to adopt and'or implement additional mitigation measures beyond those adopted by the Lead Agency.
