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 and conference.

The California Energy Commission staff has scheduled workshops and a conference to discuss the proposed Contra Costa Power Plant Project. They are to be held as follows:


Beginning at 9 a.m.
FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2001
Beginning at 5 p.m.

Pre-Hearing Conference:

Beginning at 5 p.m.


Delta Diablo Sanitation District Boardroom
2500 Pittsburg-Antioch Highway
Antioch, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

The workshops are being held to examine public health and safety, environmental impacts and engineering aspects of the proposed power plant. The pre-hearing conference will assess the readiness for evidentiary hearings, identify areas of agreement and dispute, and discuss procedures for the evidentiary hearing.

Southern Energy Delta LLC proposes to construct and operate the Contra Costa Power Plant Unit 8, a 530-megawatt, natural gas-fired, combined cycle power plant. The site exists at the Contra Costa Power Plant located 1-mile northeast of the city of Antioch on Wilbur Avenue near State Route 4, State Route 160 and the Antioch Bridge.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment and ask clarifying questions on any of the subjects. 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
