MEMORANDUM



DATE: JUNE 4, 2014

TO: THE HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF CITY COUNCIL

FROM: RASHAD M. YOUNG, CITY MANAGER/s/

DOCKET TITLE:
TITLE
Presentation by Dominion Resources of its Proposal to Construct an Underground 230kV Transmission Line in the City, as well as to Construct a New Substation on the NRG Site.
BODY
_________________________________________________________________

ISSUE: Dominion Resources proposal and its potential impact on the City.

RECOMMENDATION: Receive the Dominion Resources oral report.

BACKGROUND: Dominion Resources is proposing that a new underground 230kV transmission line be constructed in a route to-be-determined between its Arlington South Glebe Road substation and a proposed new to-be-constructed substation on the western side of the NRG site. The route of the 230kV line has not been determined. The new substation is proposed to be located between the existing PEPCO substation and Abingdon Drive adjacent to the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Dominion is also proposing as part of this project to fold into the Arlington Substation the previously City approved and agreed to plan to eliminate the temporary substation site in North Potomac Yard adjacent to Four Mile Run, as well as three related transmission towers that feed the Potomac Yard site.

Attached is the City's June 2 letter to Dominion requesting that a thorough needs assessment, as well as a robust community engagement process, be conducted by Dominion. The letter also invited Dominion to Council's June 11 meeting which Dominion has accepted. Also attached is part of a presentation of this proposed project to the PJM Interconnection1 Board of Managers.
