The Bonneville Power Administration is looking to build a new transmission line, the Central Ferry-Lower Monumental transmission line, between two eastern Washington substations. This transmission line will go between a substation south of Kahlotus, a little over an hour from the Tri Cities, Washington, and a substation in Garfield County. The route the Bonneville Power Administration is considering is concurrent with another existing transmission line which could be good and bad. If the line was built next to a pre-existing line then they wouldn't have to worry about acquiring additional real estate, but if the lines are built next to each other and a storm comes along knocking them both down, it could cause more damage. The project will be starting possibly next spring 2011. For more information visit the Bonneville Power Administration website. Posted by Colleen Lane on
