Document Description
SDG&E's proposed power line replacement projects combines over 70 existing special use permits for SDG&E facilities within the Cleveland National Forest (CNF) into one MSUP to be issued by the Forest Service. Project approval would allow the continued operation and maintenance of approx. 102 miles of SDG&E's existing 69-kV power lines, 12 kV distribution circuits (C), and ancillary facilities, as well as approx. 31 miles of existing access roads required to maintain and operate SDG&E electrical facilities. In addition to combining the permits and easements for existing SDG&E facilities within the CNF into one MSUP, SDG&E's proposed project includes the replacement of five existing 69 kV power lines and six 12 kV distribution circuits located within and outside of the CNF, referred to herein as the proposed power line replacement projects. Power line replacement would primarily include fire hardening (wood to steel pole replacement) along with relocation, removal, undergrounding, and single-circuit to double-circuit conversion along certain facilities and segments. The proposed replacement projects allows for the continued operation and maintenance of SDG&E electric facilities within the CNF and authorize the replacement of certain existing power lines on and adjacent to CNF lands. The study area is located within multiple locations within Orange and San Diego Counties. The proposed power line replacement projects are located within and outside the Palomar and Descanso ranger districts of the CNF. The proposed projects not only traverses National Forest System lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM); tribal lands of the La Jolla, Campo, Inaja/Cosmit, and Viejas Indian Reservations managed by the respective tribes and held in trust by the BIA; Cuyamaca Rancho State Park lands managed by CA State Parks; lands under the jurisdiction of the City of San Diego, and private holdings within unincorporated San Diego County.
