Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preperation

Document Description
The proposed activities under the program would consist of the systematic conversion of overhead utilities to underground throughout the City of San Diego. The implementation of proposed activities would occur based on a prioritization system developed by the city and would be implemented in five-year increments. The Utilities Undergrounding Program consists of two types of projects: one involves SDG&E Rule 20A projects that must meet certain public benefit criteria consistent with the CPUC's statewide program. This program relates primarily to overhead lines along major city streets. The other type is known as a Surcharge project in which the project is funded by the increased franchise fee authorized by the CPUC in Resolution E-3788. Projects that fall into the surcharge category are typically found in residential areas that do not meet Rule 20A criteria.
