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 workshop.

Energy Commission staff has scheduled a workshop to discuss the proposed Hanford Energy Park Project. The workshop will be held as follows:

THURSDAY, August 3, 2000
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Amtrak Building
200 Santa Fe, Suite D
Hanford, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss data requests from Energy Commission staff related to the application process for the Hanford Project. The topics include;:air quality, biological and cultural resources, land use, geological hazards and paleontological resources, hazardous materials management, noise, power plant efficiency, traffic and transportation, transmission system engineering, visual resources, and water resources.

On May 19, 2000, the GWF Power Systems Company filed an application for a Small Power Plant Exemption from the California Energy Commission for the Hanford Energy Park. The proposed project is a 98.7-megawatt natural gas-fired, combined cycle electric generating facility to be located on a 10-acre site in Kings Industrial Park, on the southern border of Hanford, immediately adjacent to an existing GWF cogeneration plant.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions during the workshop. For more information on how to participate, contact the Energy Commission's Public Adviser, Roberta Mendonca, at (916) 654-4489, toll free at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at:
