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

Public Process

Publication of a Final Mitigated Negative Declaration (Final MND)

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.

CPUC Actions After Final MND Publication. There is no comment period following issuance of the Final MND. The CPUC will determine the adequacy of the Final MND, and, if adequate, will adopt the document as being compliant with CEQA. If adequate, the CPUC will issue a Decision on the Application, which will be announced and published concurrent with a scheduled CPUC Meeting. After the Commission makes the decision on the Application, a Notice of Determination will be mailed to the State Clearinghouse within 5 days of the Decision. After the Notice of Determination is filed, the 30 day statute of limitations for court challenges begins to run. For further information on the CPUC's decision-making process, please call the CPUC Public Advisor at (415) 703-2074.
