Document Description
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is a cooperating agency with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in preparation of the Ten West Link Project Final Environment Impact Statement (EIS). As lead agency pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the Delaney Colorado River Transmission’s (DCRT) Ten West Link Project, the CPUC hereby issues this notice. Pursuant to CEQA Guidelines §15225(a), this letter provides notice to interested parties that the Energy Division of the CPUC believes that the EIS meets the requirements of CEQA, and that the CPUC intends to use the EIS in place of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in deciding whether to approve, conditionally approve, or deny DCRT’s application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for the Ten West Link Project. The Final EIS was circulated as broadly as state law requires for an EIR, and notice of the Draft EIS was given in compliance with the standards set forth in CEQA Guidelines §15087(a). Therefore, in accordance with CEQA Guidelines §15225(a), the CPUC will use the Final EIS in place of an EIR without recirculating the federal document for public review. This notice is being given pursuant to CEQA Guidelines §15225(a), and will be posted in the office of Riverside County Clerk for 30 days as well as be posted at the State Clearinghouse. Due to the prior opportunities for comment from responsible agencies, trustee agencies, and interested parties during the EIS comment period, no further comments will be accepted. The Final EIS was published by BLM on September 13, 2019, and the Draft and Final EIS are available at the following website:
