Susquehanna to Roseland 500kV Transmission Line Right-of-Way and Special Use Permit Final Environmental Impact Statement
The National Park Service has published the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for construction and right-of-way permit as requested by Pennsylvania Power and Light Electric Utilities Corporations (PPL) and Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G), in connection with their proposed Susquehanna-Roseland transmission line. They propose to replace an existing 230kV transmission line with a double circuit transmission line carrying both a 230kV line capable of being energized to 500kV and a new 500kV line across the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreational River, and Appalachian National Scenic Trail, in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The draft EIS was released in November 2011 and was available for public and agency review and comment beginning with publication of the notice of availability in the Federal Register. Comments were accepted during the 60-day public comment period. After this public review, NPS identified the preferred alternative and revised this document in response to public comments. A 30-day no-action period will follow the notice of availability in the Federal Register for the release of the final version of this document. After this period, the alternative or actions constituting the approved
plan will be documented in a record of decision that will be signed by the Regional Director of the Northeast Region of the NPS. For further information regarding this document, please visit http://parkplanning.nps.gov/dewa.
