Taking Responsibility

At PG&E, our environmental commitment includes thoroughly evaluating sites throughout our service area that may have been impacted by our historical utility operations. We use scientific and environmental best management practices supported by culturally relevant stakeholder outreach to engage communities in a meaningful way. Project details are shared with the community and we strive to respond to questions and concerns quickly. If you need to reach us regarding any of our environmental initiatives, feel free to contact us.

Protecting Vital Resources

Our investigation and cleanup efforts continue to progress at the company's Hinkley and Topock natural gas compressor stations, where historical operations resulted in chromium affecting the soil and groundwater. At Hinkley, PG&E continues to work under the direction of the Water Board on additional investigation activities as well as on a plan to complete the cleanup. READ MORE

Transforming Former Utility Facilities

PG&E has also reached important milestones in its efforts to redevelop former utility facilities for reuse. These efforts include the ongoing restoration of the former Hunters Point Power Plant site in San Francisco, and the conversion of a former geothermal waste facility in Lake County into wetlands, which serve as an outdoor classroom for local science students.

Sustainable Remediation

PG&E has developed a Programmatic Sustainable Remediation Guidance Manual, which presents a dynamic roadmap and systematic approach for PG&E and its contractors to implement sustainable practices and principles throughout the entire lifecycle of PG&E remediation projects. The Guidance reflects a close collaboration with the California Environmental Protection Agency's Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) and industry experts on sustainable remediation. This collaboration emphasizes implementation of sustainable best management practices and quantification of related benefits across environmental, social, and economic elements. READ MORE
