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 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.
