BPA owns and operates the 230-kV Roundup-LaGrande transmission line that crosses the proposed Coyote Business Park site. The portion of the transmission line that crosses the business park site is supported by 12 wooden “H-frame” structures, each about 60 feet tall. The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) has requested that BPA remove these structures and replace them with single steel poles about 110 feet tall. Taller steel poles will increase the clearance between the ground and the conductors and reduce the footprint of the line, thus expanding CTUIR's options for future parking and transportation needs. BPA has decided to remove and replace these structures.
