Officials plan meetings for western Wis. power line project
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — State officials are planning a pair of public meetings later this month on a western Wisconsin power line project.
Excel Energy, Dairyland Power and Wisconsin Public Power Inc. want to extend a line from Minnesota across the Mississippi River into Buffalo County. The line would run south and end near Holmen.
The Department of Natural Resources and the Public Service Commission plan to issue a joint environmental impact statement on the project. The meetings will offer people the chance to learn more about the statement’s scope and voice concerns.
A draft version of the statement should be finished by fall, with a final version completed before the end of the year.
The meetings are scheduled for July 14 in Buffalo City and July 20 in Centerville.
