Kirkwood Meadows Power Line Reliability Project DEIS / EIR
The Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (DEIS/EIR) for the Kirkwood Meadows Power Line Reliability Project has been completed and is available for public review and comment. Resource Concepts, Inc. prepared the report. The project proposes to construct, maintain and operate a 28-mile power line that would connect the Kirkwood service area to the regional electric grid at Salt Springs Reservoir. The line would be owned and operated by Kirkwood Meadows Public Utility District (KMPUD), and dedicated to serve the Kirkwood Community in order to provide a more reliable, cost-stable, and cleaner source of electricity. The 28-mile project is located within Alpine, Amador, and El Dorado Counties in California. Approximately 3.1 miles would be built along an existing overhead line between Salt Springs Reservoir and Bear River Reservoir. The remaining 25 miles would buried within existing roadways and disturbance corridors to Kirkwood. The power line would be located predominately across Eldorado National Forest land and approximately 15% of the project would cross private land.
