Notice of 8/16/10 Prehearing Conference

Docket No: 08-1474

In the Matter of the Route Permit Application for a 345kV Transmission Line from Brookings County, South Dakota to Hampton, Minnesota

Monday, August 16, 2010

2:30 – 4:30 PM

PUC Large Hearing Room – 3rd Floor

121 – 7th Place East

St. Paul, MN

As framed by the ALJ:

The Commission directed that the ALJ reconvene the hearing for consideration of additional evidence regarding the Minnesota River crossing by the proposed High Voltage Transmission Line to run from Brookings, South Dakota to Hampton, Minnesota, in particular whether it is preferable to cross the Minnesota River at Belle Plaine or at Le Sueur and which crossover route is preferable (if a crossing at Belle Plaine is preferred).

Persons participating in the Prehearing Conference should be prepared to address the question of how best to proceed on remand and discuss time frames, scheduling, and procedures for soliciting and receiving public comment on the remanded issues.
