Record of Decision; Boardman-to-Ione 69-kV Transmission Line
Document Number: 2019-11140
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-05-29
Agency: Department of Energy
The Bonneville Power Administration has decided to implement a portion of the Agency Preferred Alternative from the Final Environmental Impact Statement and Proposed Land Use Plan Amendments for the Boardman to Hemingway Transmission Line Project (DOI-BLM-ORWA- V000-2012-0016-EIS, OROR-065375, IDI-036029 and DOE/EIS-0507, November 2016) (B2H Project Final EIS). More specifically, Bonneville has decided to enter into an amended land use agreement with the U.S. Navy (Navy) concerning Bonneville's existing 69-kilovolt (kV) Boardman-to- Ione transmission line. This amended land use agreement authorizes Bonneville's ongoing access to certain land on the Navy's Naval Weapon Systems Training Facility Boardman (NWSTF Boardman) in Morrow County, Oregon for approximately 14 miles of the Boardman-to-Ione transmission line, while also including terms to trigger the phased removal of this line off of NWSTF Boardman if the B2H Project is constructed. Idaho Power Company (IPC) has proposed to construct the approximately 290-mile-long B2H Project, a portion of which would occupy the Boardman-to-Ione transmission line right-of-way. The environmental effects of removing the Boardman-to-Ione transmission line from NWSTF Boardman were analyzed in the B2H Project Final EIS, and removal of this line was identified as part of the Agency Preferred Alternative in the Final EIS. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was the lead federal agency under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for preparation of the B2H Project Final EIS. Bonneville and nineteen other public entities were involved in the EIS as cooperating agencies under NEPA. Bonneville hereby adopts the relevant portions of the Final EIS to support its decision to amend the Boardman-to-Ione transmission line land use agreement. Several other federal agenciesincluding the BLM, the U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamationhave issued approvals to IPC for portions of the B2H Project under their jurisdiction. These approvals have been for a B2H Project route alignment that follows the Agency Preferred Alternative in the Final EIS. Bonneville's decision to amend the existing Boardman-to-Ione land use agreement to allow for removal of the line for the B2H Project is consistent with these approvals.

Document Number: 2019-10695
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-24

The Commission proposes to use this latest version instead of WEQ Version 003.1, which was the subject of an earlier notice of proposed rulemaking. The revisions made by NAESB in this version of the standards are designed to aid public utilities with the consistent and uniform implementation of requirements promulgated by the Commission as part of the pro forma Open Access Transmission Tariff.
