Southern California Gas Company / San Diego Gas & Electric Fiber in Gas Project CPUC A.02-03-061

for Adoption of an Initial Study / Mitigated Negative Declaration for
SCG/SDG&E’s “Fiber In Gas” Project (Schedule G-FIG)

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) invites you to review and comment on an Adopted Initial Study / Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the Southern California Gas Company (SCG) / San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E)’s “Fiber in Gas“ Project (Schedule G-FIG). SCG/SDG&E have submitted a proposal(s) to the CPUC requesting authorization to implement a new service allowing telecommunications carriers and cable television companies (Carriers) to place fiber optic cable in conduit previously installed by SCG/SDG&E. The new service would allow SCG/SDG&E to install conduit within its active gas pipelines using a proposed technology referred to as “fiber-in-gas” or “FIG.” The new service would establish tariff rates, terms and conditions allowing Carriers to place fiber optic cable in previously installed conduit in active gas pipelines.

This service would be available within the service territories of SCG and SDG&E that include 13 counties in southern California. (Counties: Fresno, Imperial, Los Angeles, Kern, Kings, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tulare, and Ventura). Since there is no definitive project that would apply a FIG technology being proposed at this time, this document addresses potential impacts at a general, programmatic level.
