Present Land Use
The Proposed Project is located entirely within the jurisdiction of Del Norte County. The existing Simonson Substation and the proposed Morrison Creek Substation site is zoned Manufactoring and Industrial (M), with the County land use designation of General Information (GI). The proposed Morrison Creek Substation site is currently vacant and was previously used by a lumber mill operation.

Document Description
Through its CPUC application (A.07-07-018) filed on July 20, 2007, pursuant to CPUC General Order (GO) 131-D, PacifiCorp seeks a Permit to Construct (PTC) the proposed Morrison Creek Substation and remove the existing Simonson Substation (Proposed Project). The existing Simonson Substation, which currently steps voltage down from 69 kilovolt (kV) to 12.5 kV, would be replaced with the proposed Morrison Creek Substation which would have the same distribution capabilities. The objective of the Proposed Project is to increase system reliability in order to continue safe and reliable electric service to customers in the area.
