EXPLORATION AND CONSTRUCTION UTILIZING HELICOPTERS TO REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

In these days of ecologic studies, environmental impact statements, and beautification, we seldom have the opportunity to evaluate cost versus benefits. In many cases, the evaluation is so filled with personal opinions and suppositions that cost and benefits are almost impossible to break down. This paper deals with one project in which it is possible to fairly accurately define the costs and more importantly, to observe the benefits. The project is the Lower Granite-Hatwai 500-kV Transmission Line of the Bonneville Power Administration. The portion under discussion is a 13-mile section along the "breaks" of the Snake River in the Clarkson, Washington-Lewiston, Idaho area. /Author/
