Epcor West Edmonton Transmission Line Project

segments2

Epcor is proposing to build new transmission lines from their Poundmaker to Meadowlark substations.

Each of the segments in the map above is a potential route for the new above ground transmission lines. Segment A would follow the Anthony Henday Utility Corridor and the Whitemud Drive Corridor. Segments B through G would require building new lines in Glenwood, above ground, and between homes and the sound barrier along 170th street.

Any route selected by Epcor requires the approval of the Alberta Utilities Commission. Your property in Glenwood might be directly adjacent, or in close proximity to a potential route that could mean the construction of new transmission lines in Glenwood. If this is the case, you can make a submission to the utilities regulator.
