PG&E Atlantic–Del Mar Reinforcement Project



Environmental Review

Welcome to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) website for the AtlanticDel Mar Reinforcement Project. On October 17, 2001, the CPUC released a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration and Initial Study (MND/IS) for a 30-day review period. In response to numerous comments on potential visual impacts, the visual resources analysis has been revised and the MND/IS recommends mitigation requiring that the power line be installed underground from a location south of Sunset Boulevard to north of Midas Avenue. As a result, the analysis of all other environmental issue areas was reevaluated. Where potential new impacts were identified, those impacts are described and additional mitigation measures have been added.

The Atlantic-Del Mar Reinforcement Project was approved by the CPUC in Decision D.03-02-007 on February 13, 2002. The Final MND/IS responds to comments received on the initial Draft MND/IS as well as the Revised Draft MND/IS was released on February 14, 2003. Copies of the MND/IS documents may be viewed and downloaded from the links presented below. Construction of the PG&E Atlantic-Del Mar Project was conducted from April 2005 through May 2006.
