El Paso Global Networks
California Telecommunication System Project


       Welcome to the California Public Utilities Commission's (CPUC) El Paso Global Networks California Telecommunication System Project web site. Under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is the designated state lead agency for the El Paso Global Networks California Telecommunications System Project. This communication system consists of a 337-mile fiber optic cable route and associated facilities that will be installed via trenching, plowing, boring, and bridge attachments in street and highway rights-of-way. The project requires laying fiber optic cable in trenches dug in these rights-of-way and will include construction of six small regeneration/optical amplification stations spaced at intervals along the route. Entering California at Blythe, the route passes through Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles Counties, and through lands owned by the federal government, ending in downtown Los Angeles.
