The remainder of the proposed project would cross lands owned by various entities including the State of California, local governments, and private parties. The proposed transmission lines would utilize structures ranging in height from 120 to 170 feet, spaced approximately 700 to 1,600 feet apart, and would occupy rights-of-way of approximately 60 to 300 feet in width (subject to local conditions and restrictions). Two public scoping periods followed the CPUC’s publication of the Notice of Preparation of an EIR/EIS on September 15, 2006, and the BLM’s publication of the Notice of Intent in the Federal Register on August 31, 2006. Consultation with agencies and tribal governments also continued after the formal scoping ended. In addition, notices regarding alternatives to be evaluated in the EIR/EIS were mailed to interested parties in March and May of 2007. In January 2008, a Draft Environmental Impact Report/ Environmental Impact Statement (DEIR/ EIS) was issued jointly by the CPUC and BLM. The DEIR/EIS provided information about the environmental setting and impacts of the Proposed Project and 27 alternatives, as well as connected actions and future foreseeable projects. The Environmental Protection Agency published a Notice of Availability for the DEIR/EIS/Plan Amendment on January 11, 2008, initiating a 90-day comment period. Copies of the document were sent to affected Tribes as well as Federal, State and local government agencies. The document was posted on the CPUC Web site and a link was provided on the BLM Web site. News releases were published in local newspapers announcing the availability of the document, and approximately 14,000 notices were mailed to known interested parties. In late January 2008, nine informational workshops were held throughout San Diego and Imperial counties. In February and May 2008, CPUC conducted seven public participation hearings to receive comments on the DEIR/EIS and any other issues of concern related to the SDG&E application. In July 2008, a Recirculated DEIR/ Supplemental DEIS was issued by the CPUC and BLM that included three components: (1) New and revised analysis of the La Rumorosa Wind Project in Mexico and associated transmission/substation upgrades in the E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1
