Community Calendar Announcement

January 3, 2001

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

California Energy Commission staff will conduct a air quality and data request workshop to discuss the proposed Nueva Azalea Power Plant Project as follows:

Air Quality starting at 4:30 p.m., ending at approximately 6:00 p.m.
Data Requests starting at 6:30 p.m., ending at approximately 8:30 p.m.
Downey Community/Senior Center
7810 Quill Drive
Downey, CA
(Wheelchair Accessible)

This workshop is being held to discuss the available existing air quality data, whether that data is sufficient and to also examine alternative methods if the air quality data is insufficient. There will also be an opportunity to discuss data requests related to the application for certification. Data request areas will include, but not limited to: air quality, cultural resources, land use, public health, socioeconomics, transmission systems engineering, visual resources and waste management.

The applicant, EM-One Power Station LLC, is proposing to construct the Nueva Azalea Power Plant Project, a 550-megawatt, natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant on a 13.5-acre site in the City of South Gate at the eastern edge of the city limits. The site is bound by Southern Avenue on the north, East Frontage Road of the 710 Interstate Freeway on the west, Garfield Avenue and Miller Way on the east, and other developed industrial properties on portions of the south, east and west.

The public is encouraged to participate and will have the opportunity to provide comments and ask questions during the workshop. Persons requiring information on how to participate in the Energy Commission's review of the proposed project should contact Roberta Mendonca, the Energy Commission's Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489 or toll free in California at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at
