EIS-0307: Withdrawal of Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement

Presidential Permit Application, Public Service Company of New Mexico

The proposed Federal action in this EIS was to grant Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) a Presidential permit for the construction, operation, maintenance, and connection of two 345,000-volt electric transmission lines originating at the switchyard of the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station (PVNGS) near Phoenix, Arizona, and extending approximately 160 miles to the south, crossing the United States border with Mexico in the vicinity of Nogales, Arizona. In a letter dated November 16, 2004, PNM notified DOE that it no longer finds the proposed project viable and withdrew its application for a Presidential permit. Therefore, further preparation of an EIS is not necessary.
