Present Land Use
Primarily follows established roads and open space between the cities of Petaluma and Sonoma. Land uses are primarily open space, however, portions of the transmission line traverse rural and urban thoroughfares.

Document Description
To address low voltage and overloading problems in the Sonoma/Napa area, PG&E seeks authority, pursuant to CPUC General Order 131-D, Section III(B), to upgrade the electric transmission system by installing a second 115 kV transmission circuit (new) within its existing single-circuit 115 kV transmission line route between its Lakeville and Sonoma Substations. The second 115 kV transmission line would be installed on a rebuilt version of PG&E's existing single-circuit 115 kV transmission line, thus co-locating the two circuits on a single set of poles for a total distance of approximately 7.23 miles. A 3,060-foot length of the new second circuit transmission line along Leveroni Road from approximately Fifth Street West to the Sonoma Substation would be undergrounded. Modifications to PG&E's Lakeville and Sonoma Substations are needed to accommodate the new circuit, but there would be no expansion beyond the existing utility-owned properties.
