The State Department of Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) and the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) are about to give the Gas Company the green light to resume operation of the Aliso Canyon Gas Facility before the cause of the gas well blowout has been determined. They will be holding a public meeting on February 1 and 2 in Woodland Hills on this matter. The meetings will be from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm each evening.
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. NOW IS THE TIME TO SHOW UP AND SPEAK UP.
Two public hearings are scheduled to collect public feedback on the proposed well reopening:
Wednesday, February 1, 5:30-9:00pm
Thursday, February 2, 5:30-9:00pm
The meeting is being held as required by Senator Pavley’s Senate Bill 380 to provide an opportunity for comment on the findings of the comprehensive gas storage well safety review conducted at the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility and on the Division’s proposed minimum and maximum pressure limits for the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility.
The CPUC will be on hand to discuss energy reliability and how to participate in a future proceeding to determine the feasibility of minimizing or eliminating the use of the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility.
