PSC Updates

Show your opposition to the proposed Cardinal-Hickory Creek Line

Attend one of three “Scoping” sessions conducted by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC) and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Thursday, November 8, identical sessions at 2:00 & 6:00

Dodger Bowl, 318 King St, Dodgeville

Monday, November 12, identical sessions at 2:00 & 6:00

Madison Marriott West – Salon A, 1313 John Q. Hammons Dr, Middleton

Wednesday, November 14, identical sessions at 2:00 & 6:00

Grant County Fairgrounds, UWEX Youth and Agriculture Center Auditorium, 916 E Elm St, Lancaster

Now that ATC’s application to the PSC has been deemed complete, they have begun their review processes of which the above “Scoping Sessions” are part. The purpose of the meetings is to inform the public about the PSC regulatory process and to solicit public input that will be used in creating a Wisconsin Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). They need to hear from us about what we consider to be the full range (scope) of potential environmental impacts of the lines. For the purpose of this EIS, “environment” encompasses an expansive range of natural, cultural, economic, social and related factors.

Your presence at one of the Scoping Sessions is very important. By having large numbers of people attend we will send a strong message about the widespread extent of public opposition to CHC. You will have the opportunity to submit comments, but it is not required to do so at these meetings.

Written comments can be submitted to the PSC up until January 4, 2019 at http://bit.ly/CHC-SCOPING-E-COMMENT. Please send a copy to media@driftlessdefenders.com. Driftless Defenders, in conjunction with other opposition groups, will send out information to help you create high-impact comment submissions to the PSC. We will also hold a scoping comment help session; the time and place will be announced later.

We look forward to seeing you on either November 8, 12, or 14!

Sincerely,
Driftless Defenders Leadership Team
