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.

The California Energy Commission staff will conduct a workshop to discuss aquatic biology and visual issues on the proposed El Segundo Power Redevelopment Project as follows:

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2002
Beginning at 10 a.m.

The workshop will provide the staff an opportunity to take the public's, intervenors' and the applicant's oral and/or written comments on aquatic biology and visual resources issues.
