LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management Wyoming State Office and the Western Area Power Administration seek public input on the TransWest Express Transmission Project Draft Environmental Impact Statement.

The public has until Monday, Sept. 30, to review and comment on the draft EIS. The notice of availability of the document was published in today’s Federal Register, which started the 90-day comment period.

TransWest Express, LLC is proposing the TransWest Express Transmission Project, a 725-mile long extra-high voltage, direct current transmission line extending from south-central Wyoming to southern Nevada.

The project is intended to provide the transmission infrastructure and capacity necessary to deliver up to approximately 3,000 megawatts of electric power from renewable energy resources in south-central Wyoming to a substation hub in southern Nevada.

The BLM and Western are co-lead federal agencies for the National Environmental Policy Act process for this project, and are working with cooperating agencies in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and Nevada.

Members of the public, government agencies, and Tribes are encouraged to provide comment on the draft EIS during the 90-day public comment period. The BLM and Western will host public meetings in the proposed project area during the public comment period which will be announced at least 15 days before the meeting through local news media and the BLM website.

The Draft EIS is available for downloading the BLM’s project website here and Western’s project website here. Comments can be submitted to the BLM and Western during the public meetings, by email: TransWest_WYMail@blm.gov or by mail to: TransWest Express Project, Bureau of Land Management, P.O. Box 20678, Cheyenne, WY 82003.
