Document Description
Hetch Hetchy Water & Power (HHW&P), a subsidiary of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), in cooperation with both the U.S. Department of the Interior National Park Service (NPS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USFS), is proposing a communications system upgrade and replacement project. The communication system is used for the operation of HHW&P's water supply and electric utility system, which includes facilities in the upper Tuolumne River watershed of Yosemite National Park and the Stanislaus National Forest in the Sierra Nevada. The purpose of the proposed project is to: (1) vacate the 2 Gigahertz (GHz) band currently being used, per Federal Communications Commission requirements; (2) replace and upgrade the aging communications system with an improved system; (3) provide the video and radio bandwidth to allow for future installation of voice radio systems, which could expand system coverage in the O'Shaughnessy, Cherry Lake, and Lake Eleanor areas beyond existing coverage; and (4) provide the foundation infrastructure for housing NPS and USFS communications equipment associated with their individual communications systems.
