k. Description of Request: SCE is proposing to delete from the license the 7.58-mile-long, 33-kV Big Creek #1—Portal transmission line, which SCE says is part of its interconnected transmission system. The subject transmission line occupies 47.05 acres of federal lands. In addition, SCE is proposing to include within the project boundary an existing forebay control line.
