Decision 12-03-035 March 22, 2012
BEFORE THE PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
In the Matter of the Application of Southern California Edison Company (U338E) for a Permit to Construct Electrical Facilities with Voltages between 50 kV and 200 kV: El Casco System Project.
(Filed February 16, 2007)
DECISION GRANTING THE PETITION OF
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON COMPANY FOR
MODIFICATION OF DECISION 08-12-031, SUBJECT TO
MITIGATION IDENTIFIED IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL
FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT
This decision grants, subject to specified environmental mitigation measures, Southern California Edison Company's petition for modification of Decision 08-12-031 and authorizes construction of the El Casco System Project in accordance with certain design modifications necessitated by final engineering. Those design changes have required additional environmental review of Segments 2 and 4 of the project. As the lead agency for environmental review of the project, we certify that the Supplemental Final Environmental Impact Report meets the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act and find that there are overriding considerations that merit approval of the proposed design changes, notwithstanding several significant and unavoidable environmental impacts identified in the area of visual resources. This proceeding is closed.
