On April 26, the Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM) released the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) for the Gateway West transmission project. The project, which was identified as a high priority project by the Obama Administration’s Interagency Rapid Response Team for Transmission, would cross 1,100 miles between Casper, WY and Boise, ID and would be built between 2015 and 2018. The FEIS encouraged a “phased decision-making” approach, approving segments of the transmission line while siting others at the same time. The FEIS will be open for public comment through June 28; BLM plans on hosting 13 public meetings in Idaho and Wyoming on the report in the first half of May.
