U.S. Congressman John Salazar
"It's important to applaud the state's largest two electric utilities, Public Service Company of Colorado and Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, for jointly developing this project. The partnership provides cost savings and environmental benefits through joint planning, construction and operation of the project. For these reasons, I support the Southern Colorado Transmission Improvements Project."

Bureau of Reclamation
"The Closed Basin Project is dependent upon reliable electrical power for our 170 salvage wells and other project facilities. Should electrical power be lost to the Valley for any extended period of time, the Closed Basin facilities would be rendered inoperable."
