Idaho Bulk Transmission Biological Resource Assessment(12-ID)
The Idaho Department of Game and Fish (IDFG) has no permitting or siting authority related to transmission line projects. However, the IDFG will review and provide comments to the permitting entities and decision makers reviewing transmission project prosals. The IDFG may also suggest options to avoid or mitigate a project's potential effects on biological resources. Additionally, local ordinances, such as county comprehensive plans, may require consultation in order to determine the potential impacts of the project on flora and fauna. Developers may meet informally with IDFG in order to determine whether there are species in the area that may be impacted by the project.
