Stealth project in Cleveland National Forest could cost taxpayers $1 billion; public has just 30 days to comment
By Cindy Buxton, Chair of the Forest Committee, Sierra Club San Diego Chapter
October 23, 2012 (San Diego’s East County)--Late last week, SDG&E filed a permit request with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and sent an announcement to several local residents of a replacement project for five 69 kV lines which currently circle the county at the end of last week and filed the project with the CPUC. http://www.sdge.com/regulatory-filing/3792/application-sdge-permit-construct-cleveland-national-forest-power-line
These lines traverse miles of Cleveland National Forest. Unlike the switching out of wood to steel poles that we have heard about for some time, oddly, they did not tell the Cleveland National Forest about their plans.
PLEASE review the link above and send comments to the CPUC. We have a scant 30 days to turn this around and expose SDG&E for not only gaffing off environmental quality, but probably far more important this time they are side stepping basic civil rights. Tell the CPUC they must respect the US Forest Service planning!
