Community Calendar Announcement

January 27, 1998

Dear Editor / Publisher:

If your publication, radio or television station offers a calendar of community events, you may want to include news of the following workshops.

The Pittsburg District Energy Facility (PDEF), Limited Liability Company, is proposing to develop a 500 megawatt natural gas-fired power plant. The proposed location for this plant is on a 12-acre site on East Third Street, west of the intersection of East Third Street and Columbia, in the City of Pittsburg in Eastern Contra Costa County. The project's major linear features will include a new natural gas pipeline; a new pipeline for reclaimed water; a new 115 kilovolt transmission line that will interconnect with Pacific Gas and Electric's existing Pittsburg Power Plant substation; and a truck bypass road.

The Energy Commission staff has begun its evaluation of the project. The purpose of the workshops is to discuss staff's data requests to obtain additional information and to discuss technical air quality-related issues (possible permit conditions and offset issues). The workshops will be held:

Tuesday, February 9, 1999 and
Thursday, February 11, 1999 (if necessary)
2 to 4 p.m.
Pittsburg City Hall - Council Chambers
65 Civic Avenue
Pittsburg, California

Members of the public will have an opportunity to comment, ask clarifying questions and participate in the technical discussion. Data requests are being made in the areas of air quality and visual resources. Those who wish further information about how to participate should contact Roberta Mendonca, the Commission's Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489 or toll free in California at (800) 822-6228. The workshop location is wheelchair accessible.
