Champlain Hudson Power Express Environmental Impact Statement

Champlain Hudson Power Express Transmission Line EIS

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) is preparing an environmental impact statement (EIS) to evaluate potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) transmission line between the U.S. and Canada.  DOE has a web site that is designed to provide up-to-date EIS-related information to the public and other interested parties.

 DOE has determined an EIS to be the proper National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) compliance document. The EIS will only address potential impacts in the United States; NEPA does not require an analysis of environmental impacts that occur within Canada. The EIS, however, will evaluate all relevant environmental impacts within the U.S. related to or caused by project-related activities in Canada. (DOE)
