Sierra Pacific Power Company's Hirschdale Power Line Project (A.06-04-017)

Project History

Publication of a Final Mitigated Negative Declaration (Final MND)

On June 1, 2007, the California Public Utilities Commission has prepared a Final Mitigated Negative Declaration pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for consideration of Sierra Pacific Power Company's Application to Construct the Hirschdale Power Line Project (A.06-04-017). The Final MND details the Proposed Project, evaluates and describes its potential environmental impacts, identifies those impacts that could be significant, and presents mitigation measures to avoid or minimize these impacts.

Publication of a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (DMND)

The Commission published a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (DMND) on February 16, 2007. The Draft MND was available for a 30-day public comment period from February 16, 2007 through March 19, 2007. During this period, the public presented comments and concerns regarding the Proposed Project and the adequacy of the Draft MND. These comments and concerns were addressed in the Final MND.

Additionally, the CPUC held a public information meeting on Thursday, March 1, 2007 at the Truckee Donner Public Utilities District, 11571 Donner Pass Road, Board Room, Truckee, California, between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
