Try again: Army Corps of Engineers starts new EIS of contested powerline proposed near Colonial NHP

The Army Corps of Engineers has kicked off its court-ordered environmental impact statement on Dominion Energy’s Surry-Skiffes Creek transmission line.

The Corps is essentially redoing, in a more rigorous manner, the environmental assessment it conducted prior to awarding Dominion the permit to construct the 17-tower transmission line across the James River from Surry County to James City County. The Corps will review the same list of more than 25 alternatives and potentially consider new ones as it studies environmental impacts in an analysis that will inform its reconsideration of its permit approval.
