SUPPLEMENTAL

NOTICE OF DATA RESPONSE AND ISSUE WORKSHOP
FOR THE HIGH DESERT POWER PROJECT
APPLICATION FOR CERTIFICATION
(97-AFC-1)



On April 2, 1998, staff issued a notice of a workshop to discuss environmental issues, including air quality (the emission offset plan and best available control technology), hazardous materials, and visual resources. Staff has since learned that the Mojave Desert Air Quality Management District's (District) Determination of Compliance (DOC) will only permit one of the three configurations proposed by the applicant (i.e., the 720 MW three train (3F) combined cycle). However, the District intends to include in the DOC an analysis of the other two configurations. Therefore, staff is supplementing the workshop notice to identify that the workshop will include the discussion of the scope of the District's DOC analysis, and how that change may affect the scope of the Energy Commission staff's analyses of the project.

Staff's proposed agenda for the Workshop is attached on the reverse side of this notice. A workshop summary will be posted on the Energy Commission's Internet page (see below). The time, date and location of the workshop have not changed, and will be held:

Tuesday, April 14, 1998
9:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Mojave Desert AQMD
15428 Civic Drive
Board Chambers, Second Floor
Victorville, California
