Public comments are released on power lines

Posted by Trish Riley, December 9, 2010

Armed with a slew of public comments — 1,705 all together — National Park Superintendents John J. Donahue and Pamela Underhill will begin writing a draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) addressing the proposal by PSE&G and PP&L to construct a higher, wider and more powerful transmission network through the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, the Appalachian National Scenic Trail and the Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreational River.

The recently released 280-page report addressing the Susquehanna-Roseland Transmission Line Proposal summarizes comments submitted to the Park Service during the Aug. 9 to Sept. 14 public comment period and includes a summary of all comments submitted electronically through the Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) website, in person at the August 2010 public meetings, and by mailing or e-mailing comments to the National Park Service (NPS).
