This notice initiates the public scoping period and announces public scoping meetings. DATES: The public will be notified of scoping meetings through the local news media at least 15 days prior to the first meeting. It is anticipated at least five scoping meetings (Copperton, Tooele, Cedar Fort, Eureka and Nephi, Utah) will be held during this scoping period. The BLM will announce public scoping meetings to identify relevant issues through local newspapers, newsletters, and the PacifiCorp Web site: https://www.pacificorp.com. The project status, including meeting dates/ times, will also be available on the BLM’s Electronic Notification Bulletin Board (https://www.ut.blm.gov/enbb/ index.php). Written comments on the scope of the EIS should be post-marked or hand delivered to the BLM Salt Lake Field Office or Fillmore Field Office by 4:30 p.m., no later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register to ensure full consideration. Written scoping comments should be sent to BLM, Salt Lake Field Office, 2370 South 2300 West, Salt Lake City, Utah 84119, ATTN: Mike Nelson; or Fillmore Field Office, 35 East 500 North, Fillmore, Utah 84631, ATTN: Clara Stevens. Comments may also be submitted in writing to the BLM at one of the scoping meetings or via e-mail at: UT_M2OTL_EIS@blm.gov. ADDRESSES: For additional information contact Mike Nelson (Project Lead) Realty Specialist at the BLM Salt Lake Field Office, at (801) 977–4300; or Clara Stevens, Realty Specialist at the BLM Fillmore Field Office, at (435) 743–3100. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PacifiCorp proposes to establish a new doublecircuit 500/345 kilovolt (kV) transmission line from the Mona Substation near Mona in Juab County, Utah to new expanded facilities at the existing Oquirrh Substation located in West Jordan and the Terminal Substation located in Salt Lake City, in Salt Lake County, Utah. As part of long-range planning, this project will also include the identification of a right-of-way for a double-circuit 500/345kV line and the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58681 siting of two 500/345kV substations. Corridors, large enough to allow for a 1mile separation between the proposed double-circuit 500/345kV line and the future double-circuit 500/345kV line would be considered. The estimated lengths of the proposed transmission line route and future line would be determined through the environmental studies but could range from 60 to120 miles. A right-of-way of up to 250 feet in width and a right-ofway grant for 50 years would be required to construct, operate, and maintain the transmission line and structures. Specific acreages of access roads and temporary work areas would be determined through the environmental studies. The proposed project would take approximately eighteen months to construct, with an in-service date of June 2012. Once constructed, the project would be in operation year round transporting electrical power to the Wasatch Front. The preliminary plan of development will be presented to the public during scoping meetings and newsletters mailed to interested parties. It will be available for public review at BLM’s Salt Lake and Fillmore Field Offices and the EPG Web site. The BLM invites public comment on the scope of the analysis, including issues to consider and alternatives to the proposed action. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis and EIS alternatives—in addition to the proposed action, the BLM will explore and evaluate all reasonable alternatives, including the no action alternative, pursuant to Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations 1502.14(a) and 1502.14(d). The issues and alternatives will also guide the plan amendment process. An interdisciplinary approach will be used to develop the EIS, in order to consider a variety of resource issues and concerns identified. The amendment to the governing land use plan would be based upon the following planning criteria: • The amendment will be completed in compliance with FLPMA, NEPA and all other relevant Federal Law, Executive Orders and management policies of the BLM; • Where existing planning decisions are still valid, those decisions may remain unchanged and be incorporated into the new amendment; and • The amendment will recognize valid existing rights. Potential significant direct, indirect, residual, and cumulative impacts from the proposed action and alternatives E:\FR\FM\16OCN1.SGM 16OCN1
