NOTICE OF DATA RESPONSE AND ISSUE WORKSHOP
FOR THE HIGH DESERT POWER PROJECT
APPLICATION FOR CERTIFICATION


(97-AFC-1)

The High Desert Power Project, Limited Liability Company (LLC) is proposing to construct and operate a 680 to 830 MW natural gas fueled electricity generation power plant. The proposed project is to be located in the northeast corner of the Southern California International Airport (formerly George Air Force Base), in the city of Victorville, in San Bernardino County, California. The power plant and related facilities, such as the electric transmission line, natural gas pipeline, and water lines, are under the California Energy Commission's (Energy Commission) siting authority.

The applicant has proposed an additional 26 mile natural gas pipeline to connect the project to the PG&E or Kern River pipelines. The pipeline will follow Helendale Road north of the project site to State Route 58. On Thursday, April 30, 1998, the Energy Commission staff will conduct a public workshop to discuss environmental and permitting issues associated with the additional natural gas pipeline, and to discuss environmental issues associated with the power plant proposal, including biological resources, cultural resources, land use, paleontological resources, and water resources.
