Northern Pass Transmission Seeks Permit for NH Scheme

Northern Pass Transmission, LLC and Public Service Company of New Hampshire are seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, to impact waters of the U.S. in conjunction with proposed work on the Northern Pass Project in New Hampshire.

This work is proposed in various wetlands and waters of the U.S. for 192 miles from Pittsburg, New Hampshire, along a linear line to Deerfield, New Hampshire.

Various alternative routes are being considered at this time.

The proposed work involves both direct permanent and temporary discharges of dredged or fill material into various wetlands and waters of the U.S. along the proposed route.

The direct permanent discharge is approximately 2.53 acres while the direct temporary discharge is approximately 140 acres.

The secondary impacts such as converting forested wetlands to scrub shrub wetlands total approximately 182 acres.

Project planning and design have attempted to avoid and minimize impacts to rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, floodplains and wetlands.
