ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: This notice is provided in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations (40 CFR Parts 1500–1508) and the Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). TVA will prepare an environmental assessment (EA) or an environmental impact statement (EIS) to address the potential environmental effects of proposed electrical power supply improvements in the Putnam mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:51 Jan 21, 2011 Jkt 223001 and Cumberland region of east-central Tennessee. The purpose of the proposed project is to ensure the reliable transmission of electric power to meet increasing power demands in the project area. In its environmental review, TVA will evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the construction, operation, and maintenance of proposed new and upgraded power transmission facilities. TVA will develop and evaluate various alternatives, including the No Action Alternative, in the environmental review. Public comments are invited concerning both the scope of the review and environmental issues that should be addressed. DATES: To ensure consideration, comments on the scope and environmental issues must be postmarked or e-mailed no later than February 22, 2011. If TVA decides to prepare an EIS, a notice of availability of the draft document will be published in the Federal Register, and announcements will be placed in local news media. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be sent to Anita Masters, NEPA Compliance Manager, Tennessee Valley Authority, 1101 Market Street (LP 5U), Chattanooga, Tennessee 37402–2801. Comments may be e-mailed to newtransline@tva.gov or entered online at http://www.tva.gov/environment/ reports/putnam/index.htm. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christopher A. Austin, Civil Engineer, Tennessee Valley Authority, 1101 Market Street (MR 4G), Chattanooga, Tennessee 37402–2801; telephone: 800–362–4355; e-mail: newtransline@tva.gov. Project information is available online at http://www.tva.gov/power/projects/ putnam_cumb/index.htm. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: TVA is an agency and instrumentality of the United States, established by an act of Congress in 1933, to foster the social and economic welfare of the people of the Tennessee Valley region and to promote the proper use and conservation of the region’s natural resources. One component of this mission is the generation, transmission, and sale of reliable and affordable electric energy. TVA provides electric power to most of Tennessee and to parts of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Kentucky. TVA transmits this power over approximately 16,000 miles of transmission lines. PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4147 TVA supplies bulk electric power to Cumberland and Putnam counties and the immediately surrounding areas in east-central Tennessee through an existing network of 26 161-kilovolt (kV) substations and 28 161-kV transmission lines. Population in this area has grown at a rate of almost 1.8 percent per year since 2000. TVA studies indicate that 19 of these substations will not meet acceptable voltage criteria by 2016, and the remaining seven substations will be unable to meet criteria by 2019. Five of the 161-kV transmission lines are expected to become overloaded by summer 2016, and 11 more lines are likely to be overloaded by summer 2019. Long-range studies indicate that either the provision of a 500-kV source or extensive upgrades to existing 161-kV facilities will be required in the Putnam County and Cumberland County area by 2016 to meet anticipated power loads. Proposed Alternatives TVA has identified three potential alternatives to meet the identified power supply needs. The first involves upgrading existing transmission lines in the area. This would require replacing conductors (i.e., ‘‘wires’’) on approximately 54 miles of transmission lines and performing other upgrades (e.g., resagging and retensioning conductors and increasing structure heights) on about 115 miles of transmission lines. Extensive equipment upgrades would be required at 11 161kV substations. The second potential alternative involves the construction and operation of a new 500-kV substation in western Cumberland County near the existing Campbell Junction 161-kV Substation. The new substation would require an area of 60 to 80 acres. Under this option, TVA would acquire a 300-foot-wide right-of-way, then construct, operate, and maintain two new parallel 500-kV transmission line connections from the new substation to the TVA RoaneWilson 500-kV Transmission Line. The length of the new lines would likely be less than 2 miles. In addition, following acquisition of a 100-foot-wide right-ofway,TVA would construct, operate, and maintain two new 161-kV transmission line connections on a double-circuit line (i.e., a line consisting of two sets of conductors located on common structures) from the new 500-kV substation to the existing TVA Monterey-Peavine 161-kV Transmission Line. The new connections would likely be less than a mile long. New substation equipment would be installed in the Jamestown, Tennessee, area under this option. E:\FR\FM\24JAN1.SGM 24JAN1
