Notice of Proposed Action
Pacific Gas and Electric Company
Vegetation Management Program for 14 Transmission Line Right of Way Corridors
USDA Forest Service
Plumas National Forest
This notice serves as an addendum to the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) proposal which was posted August 8, 2012 in the Feather River Bulletin. This addendum is identical to the original posting, but is extending the scoping period to end on September 20, 2012.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is proposing to use herbicides within 14 Transmission Line right-of-ways (ROWs) within the jurisdiction of the Plumas National Forest (PNF) and along Caribou Road. PG&E proposes to use herbicides to control unwanted vegetation on National Forest System (NFS) lands. Vegetation management is a critical component of ongoing operation and maintenance of these transmission line ROWs and the use of herbicides is necessary for safe and reliable operation of the facilities and to reduce the possibility of catastrophic wildfires.
The purpose of this scoping period is to provide an opportunity for the public to provide early and meaningful participation on a proposed action prior to a decision being made by the Responsible Official. A Vegetation Management Program (VMP) is available upon request. If you have any questions about this proposal, or would like more information or a copy of the VMP, please contact Mr. David Drake at (530) 836-7122.
