Montpelier Mississippi 161 kV Transmission Line

Clay and Oktibbeha Counties, Mississippi

On February 24, 2017, TVA issued an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for its proposal to improve the existing power supply in the Montpelier, Mississippi area by constructing, operating, and maintaining a 15-mile transmission line. TVA would purchase easements that provide the necessary rights to construct, operate, and maintain the proposed transmission line route. The right-of-way easements TVA proposes to acquire totals approximately 182 acres.

The EA describes the anticipated environmental impacts of the construction and operation of the transmission line. The EA and FONSI are available through the links below.

Additional information on this project is available, including background information, maps, and a project schedule.
