About the Project
The Indian River – Lyme Junction Transmission Project is an approximately 9.3-mile new 115 kV electric transmission line project in the Towns of Brownville, LeRay, and Pamelia in Jefferson County, New York. The Project will will reduce the duration and frequency of power outages to more than 30,000 National Grid North County customers, enhance the region’s ability to support economic growth and improve the pathway to add new clean energy sources to the network.
The Project involves:
- Construction of a new North Watertown Substation in Brownville.
- Construction of a new 115 kV electric transmission line between the existing Indian River Substation in LeRay and the new North Watertown Substation. The new transmission line will host approximately 84 new steel monopoles, conductor, shield wire, and associated hardware.
- Upgrading the existing Indian River Substation to support the new transmission line.
The Project is currently in its design phase, with the project team performing field investigations to use in project engineering. As the Project moves to the permitting phase, neighbors will receive more details on the project design, location, timeline, and how to participate in the permitting process.
