Electronic (on CD–ROM) or paper copies may also be obtained by contacting Greg Hill at the aforementioned addresses and phone number. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Southern California Edison (SCE) is proposing to construct a new 230-mile long, 500kilovolt (kV) electrical transmission line between SCE’s Devers Substation located near Palm Springs, California, and the Harquahala Generating Station switchyard, located near the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station west of Phoenix, Arizona. For the most part, this portion of the project would parallel SCE’s existing Devers-Palo Verde No. 1 500 kV transmission line. In addition, SCE is proposing to upgrade 48.2 miles of existing 230 kV transmission lines between the Devers Substation west to the San Bernardino and Vista Substations, located in the San Bernardino, California, vicinity. Together, the proposed 500 kV line and the 230 kV transmission facility upgrades are known as DPV2. Construction of DPV2 would add 1,200 megawatts (MW) of transmission import VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:17 Jul 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 capacity from the southwestern United States to California, which would reduce energy costs throughout California and enhance the reliability of California’s energy supply through increased transmission infrastructure. The BLM identified a list of issues that are addressed in this analysis, including the impacts of the proposed project on visual resources, agricultural lands, air quality, plant and animal species including special status species, cultural resources, and watersheds. Other issues identified by the BLM are impacts to the public in the form of noise, traffic, accidental release of hazardous materials, and impacts to urban, residential, and recreational areas. The CPUC and BLM, pursuant to CEQA and NEPA, released the EIS/EIR on May 4, 2006. Joint CPUC and BLM public workshops were held in Tonopah, Arizona; Beaumont, California; and Palm Desert, California, on June 6, 7, and 8, 2006, respectively. Meeting notices were published in Arizona and California newspapers in early May 2006 and were mailed to an extensive public interest list. Gail Acheson, Field Manager. [FR Doc.
