Document Description
The Project proposes to build and operate telecommunication infrastructure that will house fiber optic cables on land (1.5 miles long going under the city of Grover Beach surface streets) and in the ocean (5- to 6-inch diameter landing pipes) going offshore Grover Beach and exiting at about 3,600 feet onto the ocean floor. The infrastructure and cables would carry telecommunication data to connect the United States with Singapore, Guam, Hong Kong, and Australia. Phase 1 would start in 2020 to build the infrastructure needed to bring up to four cables into Grover Beach.
