Workshop on Biological Resources
Gateway Power Plant, Unit 8
(00-AFC-1)

Southern Energy Delta, LLC (Applicant) is proposing to construct and operate a 530-megawatt, natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant known as Gateway Power Plant Unit 8 (CCPP). The proposed site is at the existing Gateway Power Plant - formerly owned by Pacific Gas and Electric Co. - located 1 mile northeast of the City of Antioch on Wilbur Avenue near State Route (SR) 4, SR 160, and the Antioch Bridge. The power plant and related facilities, such as the electric transmission line and natural gas and water pipelines, are under the California Energy Commission's (Energy Commission) siting authority.

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) for the existing Gateway and Pittsburg power plants, the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the California Department of Fish and Game and the Applicant, the potential for addressing CCPP Unit 8 biological impacts in the existing HCP and MOU, and how the Energy Commission's process will be affected by the timelines for these documents. In attendance will be the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the US National Marine Fisheries Service, and the California Department of Fish and Game. The public is welcome to attend, ask questions, and make comments on these topics. The time and place of this workshop are as follows:

Time:

Thursday, September 14, 2000
9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Location:

Commission on Aging (Wheelchair Accessible)
