We are concerned about the growing perception that simply moving the
Boardman-to-Hemingway high voltage line to public land is the answer.
Even on public land, the line is sure to run close to private property
because that is where the access roads are. These are often dusty
single-lane roads like the one serving our small farm near Durkee. The
construction phase will be three years of misery, and after that we
will have the permanent visual and environmental intrusion of the
towers and lines.
