PG&E’s proposed plans for seismic studies at Diablo Canyon Power Plant as well as a description of efforts being made to ensure that marine mammals are protected during the tests are detailed on an updated web page as well as in a new video.
- PG&E has created, and constantly updates, a specific web page full of information about its seismic safety and advanced seismic testing. There is information about why PG&E is doing this testing, how it will be conducted, maps of the survey area and details on the mitigation efforts in place to protect marine life.
- The company also has produced an informative video about the seismic work. It includes interviews with key personnel at Diablo Canyon, shows the research vessel that will be used for off-shore testing and includes graphics that show how the tests will be conducted.
As always, general information about Diablo Canyon, which supplies 2,300 megawatts of greenhouse-gas-free electricity for 3 million California residents, is available on PG&E’s website.
