The Bethel-Round Butte transmission line is a single-circuit 230-kV line that runs from PGE's Round Butte Switchyard near Round Butte Dam in Central Oregon to PGE's Bethel Substation near Salem, Oregon, a distance of approximately 100 miles. Near the Round Butte Switchyard, the transmission line crosses approximately 0.3 mile (Table 1-1) of the Ochoco National Forest-Crooked River National Grassland before it spans the Deschutes River and proceeds northwest across the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon (Figure 1-1). The transmission line crosses the crest of the Cascade Range near Olallie Butte and heads west across approximately 6.2 and 20.5 miles of the MHNF and WNF, respectively, before entering State Forest lands. Further west, the transmission line crosses BLM-administered lands and numerous private landholdings. The ONF-CRNG portion of the transmission line is located in Jefferson County; the MHNF and WNF portions are in Marion County. Captured March 24, 2009.
