Opposition to ATC 345kV Line Grows

The Dellona Town Board is the latest to join the growing opposition to American Transmission Company’s (ATC) proposed Badger Coulee Transmission Line from La Crosse to Dane County, Wisconsin. The Wisconsin News (article 1, article 2) reports that Dellona residents are worried about the negative impacts of the proposed above-ground line on development, the economy, the environment, property values, and livestock.

Many municipalities and citizen groups (e.g., SOUL) have expressed their opposition to this line since it was proposed by ATC. (Opposition would be minimal, or eliminated, if the line was buried.)
