Ruling: The Public Utilities Commission has filed a declaratory ruling with
the Legislative Research Council in the Matter of the City of Flandreau
Proposed Transmission Line. The City has asked if the proposed project is
within the SDCL 49-41B-2.1 definition of a transmission line and associated
facility, thereby requiring a SDPUC permit. On June 22, 1999, at its regularly
scheduled meeting, the commission determined that the proposed 115kV
transmission line is exempt from its siting jurisdiction because the entire
line will be installed within the existing right-of-way on S.D. Highway 32 and
the Industrial Park Road with the exception of the guying equipment for a
corner pole. Declaratory Ruling EL99-010 dated June 25, 1999.
The Public Utilities Commission has
filed a declaratory ruling with the Legislative Research Council. West River
Electric Association, Inc., requested a ruling from
the Commission regarding its jurisdiction over the siting of a new 115 kV
transmission line near Rapid City. In the ruling, the Commission ordered that
WREA's proposed transmission line is subject to the Commission's siting
jurisdiction. Public Utilities Commission Declaratory Ruling EL00-030 dated
December 14, 2000.
