Document Description
Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) proposes to conduct a high-energy offshore seismic survey to better characterize various fault zones in the vicinity of the Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP), an electricity-generating nuclear power plant at Avila Beach, San Luis Obispo County. PG&E has been directed to conduct the survey by the California Energy Commission (CEC) pursuant to a report prepared to comply with Assembly Bill 1632 (Blakeslee, Chapter 722, Statutes of 2006). The Project would involve an offshore survey component, consisting of a geophysical vessel towing a series of sound-generating air guns and sound-recording hydrophones, and a nearshore component consisting of nets of seafloor geophones and onshore sound generations.
