Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is proposing to construct a new 18-mile-long 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line between BPA’s existing Badger Canyon Substation in Benton County, Washington and BPA’s existing Ashe-Marion 500-kV transmission line to the west. The Tri-Cities area is growing, and the increasing demand for power is adding to the area’s existing transmission system constraints. The primary goals of this project are to improve long-term electric reliability, improve short-term operational flexibility and address system maintenance needs. Your comments will help BPA determine the issues that should be addressed in the environmental review.
