Project Overview:

NPPD plans to construct a 115,000-volt electric transmission line from a new substation, to be called Muddy Creek and located near an existing transmission line east of Broken Bow, to an existing substation near Ord. The line is estimated to be 40 miles in length. This transmission line project will address voltage and loading issues in the immediate area and meet the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s Reliability Standards.

Public Involvement Process:

NPPD used a comprehensive public involvement process during the siting of this transmission line. Three rounds of public open house meetings were held, followed by a public hearing in August 2015. Public input was encouraged throughout the entire process.

During this project, NPPD met with area landowners; local, county and state government officials; and representatives of the appropriate regulatory agencies within the respective project area and communities.
