DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED FA C ILITIES MASSENA-M06ES 230 kV TIE The proposed 239 kV overhead transmission Une originating at a new Massena Substation in the Town of Massena, County of St. Lawrence, extending to the Moses Switchyard which is part of the St. Lawrence Power Project, Town of Massena, County ot St. Lawrence, wtll be constructed of double circuit steel lattice towers. The preferred route will be approximately 8 miles In length of which approximately 2 1/2 miles comprise a joint corridor with the proposed Massena-Que- bec 765 kV tie. Another 3 miles of the line will follow alongside the existing rights-of-way eman­ ating from the MosesSwltchyard. PRIMARY ROUTE Location of Proposed RIght-of-Way TOWN OF MASSENA The preferred route wtll head due east out of a new preferred Massena Substation to he located south of the Raquette River In the Town of Massena near the Inter­ section of County Route 81 with County Route 57, and then follow along a Joint corridor with the preferred Massena-Quebec 765 kV tie route (hereinafter descri­ bed). One quarter mile beyond LaRue Road the line will turn away from the Massena-Quebec 765 kV tie route and head nor­ therly. Just beyond Harvestock Road the new line wtll Join the existing Moses-Plattsburgh 230 kV right-of-way. Immediately south of the Grass River, the pre­ ferred route and the Moses- Plattsburgh Une Join two other existing Moses lines. The new Une wUl parallel these existing lines on the east to the Moses Switchyard, which Is part of the St. Lawrence Power Project, MASSENA-MARCY 765 KV TRANSMISSION LIN E The proposed 765 kV overhead transmission Une wtU be con­ structed of single circuit steel lattice structures originating at the new Massena Substation and terminating at a new 765 kV sub­ station to be constructed by Nia­ gara Mohawk Power Corporation In the Town of Marcy near and adjacent to Us existing Edlc Sub­ station. The line Is basically oriented north-south and Is ap­ proximately 134 miles long and follows existing rights of way for 108 miles: 59 miles along the existing Moses-Adirondack 230 kV right-of-way and 49 miles along tbe existing Adlrondack- Porter 230 kV right-of-way. PRIMARY ROUTE ^Location of Proposed RIght-of-Way TOWN OF MASSENA The, Une will leave the new Massena Substation In a south­ westerly direction approximately parallel to the southern town boundary for approximately 2 1/2 miles before angling slightly more westerly.

MASSENA-QUEBEC 765 kV TIE The proposed high voltage overhead transmission Une or­ iginating a t the preferred new Massena Subetatlon In the Town of Massena, County of St, Law ­ rence extending to a point on the UJ3. - Canada border In toe Town of Fort Covington, County of St. Lawrence will be constructed of single circuit steel lattice struc­ tures. The primary route Is 21 mUes long of which 11 m iles are parallel to toe existing Moses- Plattsburgh 230 kV right-of-way. A new 765 kV transmission Une to be constructed by Quebec Hy­ dro - Electric Commission (Hy. dro-Quebec) w ill meet toe pro - posed 765 kV line at the U.S.- Canada border, east of Border Marker 749. PRIMARY ROUTE Location of Proposed RIght-of-Way TOWN O F MASSENA The transmission Une w ill ex­ tend from toe preferred new Mas­ sena Substation In an easierlydi- rectlon through the Town of Mas­ sena south a t toe Raquette R i­ ver for a distance of 3 miles nntll crossing Its easterlyborder approximately 3/4 of a mile east of L a Rue Road.

The Internationa! Boun­ dary crossing will be east of Bor­ der Marker 749. ALTERNATES MASSENA-NORTH ALTERN ATE The Massena-North Alternate would route toe Massena-Quebec 765 kV tie northwesterly par­ alleling on the south side of the Moses-Plattsburgh 230 kV right- of-way both of the Towns of Mas­ sena and Brasher, unlike the p re­ ferred rouie which diverges from the existing corridor to Brasher. The Massena-North Alternate a l­ so Includes routing the Massena- Marcy 765 kV Une north of toe village (Massena) alongside toe existing Moses-Adirondack 230 kV rights-of-way rejoining the preferred route at the totersec- Uon of County Routes 94 and 38 southeast of the Hamlet of Louis­ ville. This alternate wonld also Include a new 765 kV North Al­ ternate Massena Substation to the general vicinity of the Intersec­ tion of toe Moses-Plattsburgh and Moses - Adirondack rtghts-of- way, south of toe Moses Switch­ yard. HERMON A L T E R N A T E to the Town of Hermonthepro- posed route would not deviate from the existing corridor. It would parallel the existing Moses-Adirondack 230 kV right- of-way on Its east side. PITCARIN WEST ALTERN A T E to toe Town of Pitcairn this alternate route for the Massena- Marcy 765 kV line would leave the preferred route at the northern boundary of Pitcairn and bypass toe town to the west, rejoining the preferred route north of Pig Town Road in toe Town a t Diana. This alternate would cross tbe Pitcairn-Diana boundary line Just east of the point where such boundary intersects Goose Pood Road approximately 1/2 mUe west of the preferred route c ross­ ing. PITCAIRN SHORT WEST ALTERN ATE This alternate Is located en­ tirely within toe Pitcairn town Umlts. The alternate would leave tbe preferred route Just south of Rose Road to a more westerly direction and cross to toe northwest side of toe Moses- Adlroodack right-of-way. Where tbe existing line angles south Just norjh of New York Route 3, the alternate would continue straight until It meets the Pitcairn West Alternate, and follow the latter alternate until it rejotos ihe pre­ ferred j-oute north of Pig Town Road to Diana. “ P V ' — PORT LEYD E N A L T E R N A T E ta toe Town of Lyonsdale this alternate would shift the proposed Mtsaena-March 765 kV Une east­ ward away from Port Leyden. The alternate leaves toe preferred route Just north of the Moose R i­ ver and rejoins the preferred route near Wheeler Road. MASSENA SUBSTATION ALTERNATE-SOUTH This alternate site for the Mas­ sena Substation would be situated 2 1/2 miles east of the preferred subetatlon site on the preferred route. 4-2-c NOTICE OF SA L E THE NATIONAL BANK OF NORTHERN NEW YORK wUl sell at Public Auction at Thalr Banking House, Stale St. Low­ ville, N.Y. oo September 20,1973 at 10:30 A.M. the following 1971 Arctic Cat, 399 Panther, Snow- sled Serial #123324.
