The Lower Churchill project inches along. Yesterday, the provincial government approved the final scoping document for the electricity transmission link to be built between mainland Labrador and the island portion of Newfoundland. The 1,100-kilometre transmission line is expected to cost $2.1 billion, and is an essential component for the Muskrat Falls hydro generation project. The guidelines and scoping document will identify the information that Nalcor Energy will be required to address in order to prepare the environmental impact statement.
