Consideration of this alternative includes an analysis of the connected action of West Butte Wind Power constructing and operating a wind farm and associated facilities (e.g., access road, transmission line, substation, and an operations and maintenance building) on privately held lands. The Notice of Availability of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was published in the Federal Register on October 1, 2010 (75 FR 60804).
