West Wide Energy Corridor Final PEIS Maps
Final PEIS maps of proposed Section 368 energy corridors are available for viewing/downloading in several formats.
Maps and supporting spatial data files that depict Section 368 energy corridors that could be designated under the Proposed Action may be downloaded by following the links below. Maps are provided in Adobe Acrobat format suitable for general review by most users. Spatial data used to create the maps and to conduct analyses are also available for interactive viewing and detailed review/analysis by advanced users.
