Subpart 1.

Wilderness areas.

No high voltage transmission line may be routed through state or national wilderness areas.

Subp. 2.

Parks and natural areas.

No high voltage transmission line may be routed through state or national parks or state scientific and natural areas unless the transmission line would not materially damage or impair the purpose for which the area was designated and no feasible and prudent alternative exists. Economic considerations alone do not justify use of these areas for a high voltage transmission line.
