Summary

State-owned utility Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is planning to undertake the Castle Rock to Troutdale Transmission Line in Oregon, the US.

The project involves the construction of a 500KV, 128km transmission line runs through Clark County, from Castle Rock, Washington to Troutdale, Oregon.

It includes the construction of tower bases, substation and related facilities, the installation of transformers and towers and the laying of transmission lines.

Energy & Environmental Economics Inc. has been appointed as a consultant.

In March 2011, BPA conducted a meeting with the rural landowners potentially affected by a high-voltage transmission line in the area.

On June 24, 2011, BPA said the study will consider four routes for the line from Castle Rock to Troutdale.

In November 2012, BPA released a 2,000-page environmental impact study (EIS) and in January 2013, BPA was asked to extend its deadline for public consultation, as the environmental impact report was huge and hence takes the time to understand.

Archaeological Investigations Northwest (AINW) has been appointed to study identify archaeological and historic resources in the project area and Environmental Science Associates (ESA) as the land surveyor.

In November 2015, BPA is in the process of releasing final EIS.

In February 2016, BPA released a 6,000 page final EIS.

As of May 2017, Facing public opposition and rising costs, BPA is analyzing a second option, the non-wires alternative pilot which includes grid management and energy storage options as the most economical alternative.
