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.
A Community Advisory Committee has been formed to advise, share concerns and provide direct input to PG&E on its environmental and community programs in the area. Programs are also in place to provide bottled water, sample wells and purchase property from affected residents. At Topock
, PG&E is working in coordination with the oversight agencies, neighboring Indian Tribes, property owners, and other stakeholders to design, build and implement a final groundwater cleanup remedy, which was approved by state and federal regulators in January 2011.
