The National Park Service (NPS) is considering issuance of a right-of-way (ROW) permit to Southern California Edison (SCE) to maintain and operate a buried 12 kilovolt (kV) distribution line (referred to by SCE as the Utah 12 kV distribution line) in Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP) as well as issue a Special Use Permit (SUP) to replace a 5.21 mile section of this 8.41 mile line. A Right-of-Way Permit (ROW permit) from the National Park Service (NPS) is a permit issued by the NPS to a third party to pass over, under, or through an NPS owned or controlled area, is discretionary and revocable, and does not convey or imply any interest in the land. NPS ROW permits may be issued to authorize operation and maintenance of most common utilities, such as telephone, fiber, water, and power lines, as well as cellular antennas and associated equipment, such as cell towers.
