The MO Department of Conservation asked ATXI to consider the following regarding the routing of MTTP:
- First avoiding, then minimizing, and finally mitigating impacts for forest, fish, and wildlife resources
- Upgrading existing transmission lines rather than clearing a new right of way
- Paralleling the new line to existing transmission lines to avoid new fragmentation event and minimize the total number of cleared acres for the project
