Decision (D.) 97-04-073 granted Alpine Natural Gas Company No.1, LCC (Alpine ) a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN), authorizing it to construct and operate a natural gas distribution system in Calaveras County, California.
As required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Commission
assessed the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project as
part of its decision to grant Alpine a CPCN. The Commission was
the Lead Agency for this environmental review. The Commissions
Energy Division conducted the environmental review and issued a Mitigated
Negative Declaration on the proposed project which concluded that
the project would not have any substantial adverse effects on the environment.
The project was therefore approved subject to Alpine implementing the
recommended mitigation measures during construction, as set forth in the
