Heights 230-kV Transmission Line Project Final Environmental Impact 
Statement (EIS) (DOI-BLM-OR-134-2013-0002-EIS and DOE/EIS-0505, October 
2016). Pacific Power will construct, operate, and maintain the Project, 
which will be a new 230-kV transmission line that will extend from 
PacifiCorp's existing Pomona Heights Substation in Yakima County, 
Washington to BPA's existing Vantage Substation in Grant County,
