Type II action under
Wis. Admin. Code § PSC 4.10(2), but due to its length and various sensitive resources present along the proposed routes, it is being treated as a
Type I project under Wis. Admin. Code § PSC 4.10(1). Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be prepared as specified under the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act
Wis. Stats. § 1.11.
