  1. Hearing on for Oct. 30 for James River power transmission line

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — The Army Corps of Engineers has scheduled a public hearing for Oct. 30 in Williamsburg on a proposed high-power transmission line across the James River. The project proposed by Dominion Virginia Power has stirred strong opposition among preservation and conservation groups, among others. They are fearful that power lines suspended from towering structures in the river will smudge an historic part of Virginia's landscape. That section of the river includes Jamestown Island. Preservationists say the vista isn't too different from 400 years ago when Capt. John Smith sailed on the James. The utility , however, says the power line is needed to provide reliable electrical service to a growing customer base in the region. Virginia regulars have given the green light to the project. The Army Corps' approval is also needed.
