Bye-bye beautiful Wisconsin...
American Transmission Company (ATC) and its partners have proposed a
125-mile transmission line that would run from Middleton to Dubuque.
Cardinal-Hickory Creek is DESTRUCTIVE, EXPENSIVE, OUTDATED and
NOT NEEDED to keep the lights on. We can do better.
“The Driftless Area is a truly unique landscape, rich in natural resources and well known and appreciated for its natural
scenic beauty ... The construction and maintenance of the proposed Cardinal-Hickory Creek transmission line and very
high towers will have significant and undue adverse impacts.”
George Meyer, Executive Director of Wisconsin Wildlife Federation
and former Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
“Any route through the Driftless Area will have significant
adverse impacts to wide-ranging environmental values,
including biological diversity and ecological function, historical
and cultural resources, recreational opportunities, and
aesthetics ... We must strive together for energy solutions that
do not sacrifice other conservation goals and degrade the
quality of our land.” Dr. Curt Meine, Conservation Biologist,
Historian/Writer, Adjunct Faculty UW-Madison and
Senior Fellow with the Center for Humans and Nature

“Many of the rare and threatened habitat types and species
occurring in this section of the Upper Mississippi River
valley and the Driftless Area are highly vulnerable to
disturbances of the types that the proposed CHC
transmission line and high towers would cause to occur.”
Donald Waller, Professor of Botany
and Environmental Studies, UW-Madison

It’s not too late to protect the Driftless Area.
Join these experts, your friends and neighbors June 25th-27th
at the final PSC Public Hearings to oppose this line and
demand a forward-thinking energy plan for our state.
