The USDA’s Rural Utilities Service has released the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the CapX 2020 Hampton-Rochester-LaCrosse transmission line.

COMMENTS ARE DUE ROUGHLY AUGUST 20, 2012, that’s 30 days after the Notice of FEIS should be published in the Federal Register.  But that could change, so let’s watch the Federal Register (yeah, right…).

Here’s where you can find the FEIS:

RUS CapX Hampton-LaCrosse EIS page

Get out those highlighters and post-its and start going through this thing.  And take note of what RUS says is its preferred route (and note they didn’t give more than lip service to addressing “need” for the line).  If you need a hard copy, contact Stephanie Strength below.

SEND COMMENTS TO:

or by email:

Remember, send by August 20, 2012 (estimate date based on publication of Notice).  If you have any questions, email Stephanie or call her at 970-403-3559.  I’d guess that by this time she’s had her baby and is now back to work!  Dogs are difficult enough, I really don’t get how anyone can do it all!
