A Draft EIS analyzing impacts of the project was released for public comment on July 16, 2010, as announced by the BLM’s publication of a Notice of Availability in the Federal Register (75 FR 41514). The BLM received 258 comments about the Draft EIS. The comments were incorporated, where appropriate, to clarify the analysis presented in the Final EIS. The Final EIS analyzes three alternatives: Two alternatives granting the ROW and a noaction alternative. These alternatives include: Alternative A—No-Action—This alternative includes denying a ROW for construction and operation of a transmission line and associated facilities across lands administered by the BLM and the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Alternative B—Proposed Action— West Route—This alternative includes the granting of a ROW for construction and operation of a 230-kV transmission line and associated facilities across lands administered by the BLM and the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge from the Echanis Wind Energy Project substation to Harney Electric Cooperative’s existing 115-kV transmission line near Diamond Junction, Oregon. Included in the analysis of this alternative are two additional minor route deviations. Alternative C—Preferred Alternative—North Route—This alternative includes the granting of a ROW for construction and operation of a 230-kV transmission line and associated facilities across lands administered by the BLM from the Echanis Wind Energy Project substation to Harney Electric Cooperative’s existing 115-kV transmission line near Crane, Oregon. This alternative is the Preferred Alternative in the Final EIS. The Final EIS also identifies and analyzes measures to mitigate adverse impacts for each alternative. Because the Echanis Wind Energy Project and other associated developments on private land are ‘‘connected actions’’ under NEPA, they are included and analyzed in the Final EIS.
