Western Area Power Administration is entering into an agreement with Tri-State Generation and Transmission to provide a temporary tap with mobile equipment to be placed until a facility study can be done for permanent construction. This Categorical Exclusion is for the installation of a temporary mobile transformer within Western's right of way (ROW) easement on Bureau of Land Management land along the Casper-Arminto 115 kilovolt transmission line 50 feet north of structure 23/8. The project will require a temporary tap, pad location, temporary fencing around the transformer structure, and spill containment, control, and counter measures. There is existing access to the location and no road construction will be required. The temporary tap and transformer will be removed when no longer needed and the ROW restored to its previous condition.
