BLM Announces Public Comment Period

Mathington Substation EA

 Price, Utah-The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Price Field Office
announces the 30-day public comment period from May 18, through June
16, 2011, for the proposed Mathington Substation Environmental
Assessment (EA).  The EA describes the potential impacts of Rocky
Mountain Power Company's proposal to construct a new substation and
associated infrastructure.

 The BLM is considering granting a right-of-way (ROW) to Rocky
Mountain Power Company.  All activities associated with construction,
operation, and maintenance of the substation would be within the
authorized limits of the ROW.  Any future realignment, reconstruction,
or maintenance outside the authorized area must be authorized by
amending the ROW.
Rocky Mountain Power Company has applied for a ROW grant for
construction of a new substation to provide safe and reliable service
to the area in and around the communities of Price and Wellington,
Utah.  This new substation and related facilities are proposed to
increase the capacity and system reliability and would support area
load growth and also to optimize the use of existing facilities.

 Additional information about this project is included in the EA
available for public review and comment.  An electronic copy of the EA
can be found on the BLM's Environmental Notification Bulletin Board
(ENBB) at or a hard copy can be
obtained from the Price Field Office upon request.  Comments which
contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal
response.  However, they will be considered in the BLM decision-making
process.  The most useful comments are those that identify
alternatives, identify issues relevant to the proposal, or contain new
technical or scientific information.

 Please reference the Mathington Substation EA when submitting
comments.  Comments, including names, e-mail addresses, and street
addresses of respondents will be available for public review at the
BLM Price Field Office during regular business hours (7:45 a.m. to
4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday), except federal holidays.  

 Please include a mailing or e-mail address, phone number, or other
personal identifying information with comments.  The BLM will not
consider anonymous comments.  Individual respondents may request
confidentiality.  If you wish to withhold your name, street address,
or email address from public review and disclosure under the FOIA, you
must state this prominently at the beginning of your written comment. 
Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by law.  All
submissions from organizations or businesses will be made available
for public inspection in their entirety.  

 Written comments will be accepted during the public comment period
from May 18, 2011, through June 16, 2011.  Please submit written
