Declaratory Ruling: The Public Utilities Commission has filed a declaratory ruling with the Legislative Research Council in the Matter of the City of Flandreau Proposed Transmission Line. The City has asked if the proposed project is within the SDCL 49-41B-2.1 definition of a transmission line and associated facility, thereby requiring a SDPUC permit. On June 22, 1999, at its regularly scheduled meeting, the commission determined that the proposed 115kV transmission line is exempt from its siting jurisdiction because the entire line will be installed within the existing right-of-way on S.D. Highway 32 and the Industrial Park Road with the exception of the guying equipment for a corner pole. Declaratory Ruling EL99-010 dated June 25, 1999.
The Public Utilities Commission has filed a declaratory ruling with the Legislative Research Council. West River Electric Association, Inc., requested a ruling from the Commission regarding its jurisdiction over the siting of a new 115 kV transmission line near Rapid City. In the ruling, the Commission ordered that WREA's proposed transmission line is subject to the Commission's siting jurisdiction. Public Utilities Commission Declaratory Ruling EL00-030 dated December 14, 2000.
