CoSu Transmission Line Project to hold public meetings

The Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) and Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) will hold an additional 60-day public scoping period to gather public input on potential environmental impacts, alternatives, and mitigation measures of the Colusa-Sutter Transmission Line, or CoSu Line.

A public meeting is scheduled at 5 PM to 8 PM on Thursday, January 26, 2017, at the Colusa Casino-Resort Community Room, 3770 California 45 in Colusa.

The CoSu Line is a proposed 500-kilovolt electric transmission line that would provide a new link between the California-Oregon Transmission Project (COTP) and SMUD’s and WAPA’s transmission facilities on the east side of the Sacramento Valley.

From December 2015 through April 2016, WAPA and SMUD conducted public scoping for a joint Environmental Impact Statement/ Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) to consider alternatives to and environmental impacts of the CoSu Line in portions of Colusa and Sutter counties. Based on the comments received during that process, WAPA and SMUD are adding an additional study area approximately 20 miles south of the study areas originally scoped and refining the previously-scoped study areas. This additional public scoping period will include all study areas previously scoped, slight additions to the previously identified study areas, and a new study area that would connect to the COTP in Yolo County and would terminate near the Elverta Substation in northwestern Sacramento County.

The 60-day public scoping period begins Friday, January 6, 2017, and ends Tuesday, March 7, 2017. During the scoping period, WAPA and SMUD are seeking comments on the scope of issues to be analyzed in the Draft EIS/EIR. You can learn more about the CoSu Line and submit public comments by attending a public scoping meeting.

You do not need to attend a scoping meeting to submit comments on the scope of the Draft EIS/EIR. Previous comments are in the official record and do not need to be resubmitted. Please send comments by Tuesday, March 7, 2017, to: email: or mail:  Mr. Andrew Montano, NEPA, Document Manager, Western Area Power Administration, Headquarters, P.O. Box 281213, Lakewood, Colorado 80228-8213.
