Marys Peak BPA Communications Site Project Draft Environmental Assessment

BPA's communications site at Marys Peak (approximately 15 miles southwest of Corvallis, in Benton County, Oregon) provides voice communications between BPA’s dispatch and control centers and the BPA field crews working in the region. BPA needs to maintain and upgrade this communications site because equipment at the site is outdated or unstable, and the site needs a more reliable back-up power source due to potential power outages. The existing communications site is located on lands managed by the United States Forest Service (USFS), within the Marys Peak Scenic Botanical Special Interest Area. Some portions of the project area are on lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Northwest Oregon District. Some work may also be needed at the BPA Albany Substation in Linn County; the BPA Prospect Hill Communications Site in Marion County; and on lands owned by the City of Corvallis. BPA invites you to comment on this Project's draft environmental assessment (EA) which explains why it is needed; describes the alternatives under consideration; analyzes potential impacts from each alternative; and includes mitigation measures that would help avoid or reduce environmental impacts.
