A federal judge said he’ll likely decide by the end of the week whether to block the start of construction of Eversource’s $84 million transmission line that would cross the sensitive Little Bay estuary on the Seacoast.
The Conservation Law Foundation filed a two-count lawsuit contesting the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit for the project that seeks to improve power reliability with a 115-kilovolt line from Madbury to Portsmouth.
The focus of the environmental organization’s objection is a one-mile stretch of transmission line that would be layed across the bottom of Little Bay.
