2013 Draft EIS public meetings resources

As part of their work to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the TWE Project, BLM/Western hosted 13 public meetings/hearings about their Draft Environmental Impact Statement, announced on July 3, 2013. Meetings were held in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and Nevada in August-September. In total, more than 350 people attended the events to allow the public to review the Draft EIS in person, talk to experts and provide comments to BLM/Western for their consideration as they prepare the Final EIS.

Advertising

To meet federal agency notice requirements, the federal agencies placed multiple ads in newspapers in the project area about upcoming public meetings/hearings. Ads ran in the Rawlins Daily TimesSaratoga Sun, Henderson Press and other papers all along the proposed and alternative routes.

As the project proponent, TransWest purchased dozens of additional ads in key newspapers to help further publicize the 13 Draft EIS open houses. These ads complemented the official BLM/Western notifications. The following are three example ads:

  • Draft EIS public meetings

In the news

"Transmission is the biggest barrier to the development of Wyoming's considerable wind energy resources. But not only do we need to build the lines to carry this renewable energy to market, these lines must be 'right-sized' from the start. The key is to get the maximum number of electrons transferred with the least amount of environmental disturbance."

- Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal, 2009
