NPS releases Final Environmental Impact Statement

The National Park Service has published the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for construction and right-of-way permit as requested by Pennsylvania Power and Light Electric Utilities Corporations (PPL) and Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G), in connection with their proposed Susquehanna-Roseland transmission line. They propose to replace an existing 230kV transmission line with a double circuit transmission line carrying both a 230kV line capable of being energized to 500kV and a new 500kV line across the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreational River, and Appalachian National Scenic Trail, in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
