Tri-State Montrose Substation to Cahone Substation Transmission Line Rebuild Environmental Assessment

Multiple Counties, southwestern Colorado (2014)

Client: ERO Resources for Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association.

Role: Rocky Mountain Paleo Solutions performed a paleontological survey of potentially fossiliferous areas of the project right-of-way located on BLM and USFS lands in southwestern Colorado. The survey corridor traversed a number of bedrock geologic units from late Paleozoic to late Cretaceous age. All fossil localities were documented, and the results of the existing data analysis and field survey were compiled in a technical report and the paleontological resources section of the environmental assessment for the project.
