Please include the Project Number (2017-014) on any comments, protests, or motions filed.

k. Description of Amendment: SCE filed an application to reflect changes in transmission line and related facilities. SCE proposes to remove (1) the 5.8-miles transmission line from Big Creek #4 switchyard to Big Creek #3 switchyard, and (2) the 132.6-mile transmission line from Big Creek #4 switchyard to Springville to Magunden Substation from the project boundary, because they are part of SCE's interconnected system. SCE also proposes to revise the boundary line around the reservoir, and to remove an access road and communication and telephone lines from the project boundary. The changes will reduce the project area on lands that are managed by the U.S. Forest Service. In this proceeding we will only address the proposal to remove the subject transmission line and related facilities. The project boundary change is part of the re-licensing proceeding.
