Document Description
Kirkwood Meadows Public Utility District (KMPUD) is proposing to construct, maintain and operate a 28-mile power line that would connect Kirkwood to the regional electric grid near Salt Springs Reservoir. The line would be owned and operated by KMPUD and dedicated to serve only the Kirkwood Community in order to provide a more reliable and cleaner source of electricity. The project is located within Amador, Alpine and El Dorado Counties. Approximately 3.1 miles would be built along an existing overhead line between Salt Springs Reservoir and Bear River Reservoir. The remaining ~25 miles would be buried within existing roadways and disturbance corridors to Kirkwood. The power line would be located predominately across Eldorado national forest and 15% of the line would cross private land.
