Utah Bulk Transmission Environmental Review(9-UT)

Utah does not have a state-administered siting act for high-voltage transmission lines, permitting and review for these facilities are under the authority of local government entities.

Local Process
In the state of Utah transmission line siting and permitting is conducted at the local level. The local regulatory authorities include counties and incorporated city governments. Because each local government entity (county, town, city, etc.) has a unique process for regulating land use within their respective jurisdictions, it is recommended that transmission line developers learn about all permitting requirements, including environmental reviews, that may apply early in the planning phase.
