A public meeting is scheduled for tonight, Dec. 7, regarding PacifiCorp’s proposed Lassen Substation Project in Mount Shasta and the California Environmental Quality Act document prepared for it. The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Mount Shasta Elementary School.

The proposed project, according to a legal notice, consists of the demolition of the existing Mount Shasta Substation, construction of the new Lassen Substation, and pole replacement and reconductoring activities. The existing and proposed substations are located to the west of Interstate 5 (I-5), and the pole replacement and reconductoring activities would occur both on the west and east of I-5 in the south-central portion of unincorporated Siskiyou County.

The CPUC prepared a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration for the project.
