The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) have issued a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) for the Southline Transmission Project, a proposed 360-mile transmission line that would run across southern New Mexico and southern Arizona.

According to Southline Transmission LLC, a subsidiary of Hunt Power, the project will help relieve congestion, strengthen the existing electrical system and improve transmission access for local renewable and other energy sources. The BLM and WAPA have scheduled public hearings in May to provide information and receive comments on the DEIS.

"We are pleased to have achieved this milestone for the Southline Transmission Project, and we look forward to receiving public comments in response to the DEIS," says Hunter Hunt, president of Hunt Power. "We are proud to put forward a project that will meet critical electric power needs for the region while respecting and preserving important local resources."
