DOE has changed the location of the September 26 public scoping meeting for the Northern Pass Transmission Line Project to Colebrook Elementary School, 27 Dumont Street, Colebrook, NH.
On September 6, 2013, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published in the Federal Register an amended Notice of Intent (NOI) to modify the scope of the Northern Pass Transmission Line Project Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) (DOE/EIS–0463) and to conduct additional public scoping meetings (78 FR 54876). In that amended NOI, DOE announced four public meetings, including one on September 26 in West Stewartstown, NH. In response to public requests that raised concerns about insufficient capacity at the Stewartstown venue, DOE has since changed the location of the September 26 public meeting to Colebrook Elementary School, 27 Dumont Street, Colebrook, NH. The public scoping meeting will be from 5–8 p.m. DOE previously announced this change in public meeting location on both the Northern Pass EIS Web site at http://www.northernpasseis.us on September 10, 2013, notified persons who have subscribed to the email list of this change via email on September 10, 2013, and the DOE NEPA Web site at http://energy.gov/nepa on September 11, 2013.
