March 13, 2002, Dominion Virginia Power submitted a request to be
relieved from its obligation under Condition number 3 of a Final
Order, adopted by the Board of Supervisors on November 5, 2001.
The Final Order related to Dominion Virginia's proposal to
acquire additional right-of-way in the Southern Fauquier
Agricultural and Forestal District, in order to construct a new
34.5 kv power line adjacent to an existing power line.
The Final Order provided in pertinent part:
the governing body of any other jurisdiction approving a portion
of this electric line project require a less impactive method of
constructing the 34.5 kv electric feeder line such construction
shall also be used in this agricultural-forestal district.
Dominion Virginia Power shall have the right to apply to
the Board of Supervisors to be relieved from the obligations of
this condition upon a showing that the less impactive method
imposed in the other jurisdiction will not result in a lessening
of the impact in this jurisdiction or would be uneconomical or
impractical, which decision shall be in the sole discretion of the
Board of Supervisors."
copy of the request is attached hereto.
