Application ID:

6-4099-00048/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 27 Wild, Scenic & Recreational Rivers

Project is Located:

St Lawrence County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct and operate a 46 kV(kilovolt) transmission line, extending a distance of 26.8 miles from a proposed substation in the Town of Parishville, near the Stark Falls substation on the Raquette River, to a proposed substation located near the Piercefield substation on the Raquette River, in Piercefield. The project was initiated by the Villages of Lake Placid and Tupper Lake, and by residents in the Tri-Lakes area (Lake Placid, Tupper Lake and Saranac Lake) requesting solutions to longstanding power deficiencies in the region. A 2.2 mile section of the proposed transmission route along NYS Route 56, between Carry Falls Reservoir and Seveys Corners, is located within the Wild, Scenic and Recreational River corridor of the Raquette River. The River segment is designated a Scenic River. Approximately 42 transmission poles, with heights ranging from 38.2 feet to 56.5 feet, are proposed to be placed within the ½ mile regulated corridor on NYS Department of Transportation right-of- way and Forest Preserve land. Site condition evaluations and visual analysis indicate that one pole will be partially visible from a limited area on the Raquette River in the designated Scenic River segment.
The applicant seeks a variance under the Wild, Scenic and Recreational Rivers regulation, 6NYCRR Part 666 to accommodate those poles that will be over 40 feet in height. Pole heights in excess of 40 feet are required to provide for safe transmission line clearance and maintenance.
