EIS-0365: Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement and to Conduct Public Scoping Meetings and Notice of Floodplain and Wetlands Involvement

Baja California Power, Inc., and Sempra Energy Resources

Baja California Power, Inc. (BCP) and Sempra Energy Resources (SER) were issued Presidential permits by Department of Energy (DOE) to separately construct doublecircuit 230,000-volt (230-kV) electric transmission lines across the U.S. border with Mexico. In addition, right-of-way grants were issued to each company by the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for construction of the domestic portion of both transmission lines on Federal land. The purpose of this notice of intent is to inform the public that DOE will now prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) addressing BCP’s and SER’s projects and conduct two public scoping meetings.
