EIS-0478: Notice of Intent to Prepare Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Antelope Valley Station to Neset Transmission Project, Mercer, Dunn, Billings, Williams, McKenzie, and Mountrail Counties, North Dakota

To address an increase in the electric load forecast for western North Dakota, the USDA Rural Utilities Service issued a notice of intent to prepare a supplement to its December 2012 Draft EIS. The supplement will analyze a new alternative for a proposed transmission line from Antelope Valley to Neset, North Dakota. DOE's Western Area Power Administration (WAPA), a cooperating agency, would modify its existing Williston Substation to allow a connection of the proposed new transmission line to Western's transmission system.
