AltaLink proposes another route for Castle Rock Ridge to Chapel Rock power line

Randy Spencer

AltaLink is offering another route for the Castle Rock Ridge to Chapel Rock power line. There had been a number of objections to the 240-KV line running from Chapel Rock, heading northwest, crossing the 22 Highway and connecting to another power line at Chapel Rock. AltaLink informed Crowsnest Pass Council that the line could also run parallel with another line from the Goose Lake Substation heading west to Burmis. The line would run northwest across the highway, onto municipal land. AltaLink Spokesman John Grove piqued councils attention when he said the power line would give the Pass 80 to 100 thousand dollars in linear taxes. The utility will seek feedback at open meetings held in Cowley February 10, and Lundbreck February 11. Both will be held from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Crowsnest Pass Councillor Shar Lazzarotto suggested an open house also be held in the Crowsnest Pass.
