Keystone XL Pipeline Transmission Project
NPPD hosted a study area open house on October 9, 2013, at the Loup River Inn, Fullerton for pump station 24. The project team is consolidating all comments received for review and welcomes any additional comments. Please call 1-888-677-3412 (toll-free).
NPPD plans to construct a 115,000-volt transmission line that will route through Polk, Merrick, and Nance counties for pump station 24. This line is needed to support the additional demands that will be placed on the electric system as a result of a pumping station planned to be installed by TransCanada for its Keystone XL pipeline. The transmission line will deliver sufficient energy to Cornhusker Public Power District who will in turn provide total electric service to the pumping station.
Public Involvement Process:
NPPD will use a comprehensive public involvement process when siting the transmission line for pump station 24. Two rounds of public open house meetings will be held, followed by a public hearing. Public input is encouraged throughout the entire process.
During this project, NPPD will meet with area landowners; local, county and state government officials; and representatives of the appropriate regulatory agencies within the respective project area and communities.
NPPD will use a variety of communication methods to obtain comments and other valuable information needed for the route-siting/decision-making process.
