Document Description
The Iron Canyon Access Road Water Corssing Improvement Project consists of the rehabilitation of a previous water crossing (i.e., culvert) at a site located along an access road within the right-of-way of the California-Oregon Transmission Project, (COTP), an existing 339-mile long 500 kilovolt (kV) transmission line extending from the Captain Jack Substation in Klamath County, Oregon south to the Tesla Substation located in Alameda County. The proposed project is located on Shasta-Trinity National Forest lands within the Captain-Jack to Olinda segment of the COTP, northwest of the community of Big Bend and east of Iron Canyon Reservoir. Rehabilitation of the water crossing is necessary to reduce erosion and sedimentation and to improve access conditions.
