Mission Trail Nature Preserve Mountain View Avenue Entrance Project: (Photographic) PROGRESS REPORT WEEK TWELVE

View to the East, From Mountain View Avenue Entrance, Mission Trail Nature Preserve

Proceeding Number I.14-11-008 SAFETY AND ENFORCEMENT DIVISION’S APPLICATION FOR REHEARING

ABSTRACT: Re: BEFORE THE PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA Order Instituting Investigation And Order to Show Cause on the Commission’s Own Motion into the Operations and Practices of Pacific Gas and Electric Company with Respect to Facilities Records for its Natural Gas Distribution System Pipelines, the SAFETY AND ENFORCEMENT DIVISION’S APPLICATION FOR REHEARING document copy is embedded. INTRODUCTION Pursuant to Rule 16.1 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (“Rules”), the Safety and Enforcement Division (“SED”) hereby submits its application for rehearing of Decision (“D.”) 16-08-020 (“Decision”). Rule 16.1(c) explains that “[t]he purpose of an application for rehearing is to alert the Commission to a legal error, so that the Commission may correct it expeditiously.”To that end, SED advises the Commission that the Decision errs in its determination regarding PG&E’s violation of 49 Code of Federal Regulations (“CFR”) § 192.619, which is related to maximum allowable operating pressure (“MAOP”). The Decision’s determination that SED did not meet its burden in proving the 49 CFR § 192.619 violation is not supported by substantial evidence in light of the record, which includes PG&E’s admission to that violation. The Commission further errs in failing to adopt SED’s fine recommendation regarding MAOP, which was not disputed by PG&E in the event that PG&E was found in violation of that code section.
There are other errors in the Decision which will also be identified in this application. First, the Decision erroneously asserts that PG&E’s system is generally complaint and that “a system that works over 99% of the time is not a system in need of improvement.”2 Second, the Decision uses the wrong end date for the missing De Anza Records violations. Third, the Decision erroneously describes the applied fine for the Fresno Incident.
CONCLUSION For the foregoing reasons, SED’s recommendations should be adopted.

SAFETY AND ENFORCEMENT DIVISION’S APPLICATION FOR REHEARING

Proceeding Number I.14-11-008 PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY’S RESPONSE TO THE APPLICATION FOR REHEARING OF DECISION 16-08-020 SUBMITTED BY THE SAFETY AND ENFORCEMENT DIVISION

ABSTRACT: Re: BEFORE THE PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA Order Instituting Investigation And Order to Show Cause on the Commission’s Own Motion into the Operations and Practices of Pacific Gas and Electric Company with Respect to Facilities Records for its Natural Gas Distribution System Pipelines, the PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY’S RESPONSE TO THE APPLICATION FOR REHEARING OF DECISION 16-08-020 SUBMITTED BY THE SAFETY AND ENFORCEMENT DIVISION document copy is embeddedINTRODUCTION Pursuant to Rule 16.1(d) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) hereby responds in opposition to the Safety and Enforcement Division’s (SED) application for rehearing of Decision 16-08-020 (Application).  SED’s Application disputes the evidentiary findings underlying the Decision or raises non-legal issues. The Application, therefore, fails to identify a “legal error” warranting rehearing by the Commission. The questions raised in the OII were thoroughly investigated over the course of nearly 18 months, including more than 400 pages of written testimony from eight fact witnesses and five experts on gas distribution recordkeeping.1 The parties submitted extensive post-trial briefing.2 SED and the City of Carmel unsuccessfully appealed the same issues raised in this Application.3 Because the Application fails to identify any legal error, it should be denied.
PG&E’s brief is organized as follows:
First, PG&E demonstrates that the Commission’s determination that PG&E’s “alternative method” for setting maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) for certain distribution systems complies with the applicable regulations is supported by substantial evidence, and thus does not constitute legal error.
SecondPG&E explains that the Commission’s finding that PG&E’s distribution system is “generally compliant” is supported by substantial evidence, that the isolated instances identified by SED are not sufficient to undermine the Commission’s determination, and that this finding thus does not constitute legal error.
Third, PG&E shows that there was no legal error in setting the $12.052 million fine for the missing De Anza Division paper records because that finding is fully supported by the factual record.
FourthPG&E explains that a typographical, but non-substantive, error in the description of the Fresno incident is not legal error warranting a rehearing.
FifthPG&E attaches as an Appendix—and incorporates by reference—its response to the appeals of SED and Carmel, which provides further support for the Commission’s findings that are challenged in the Application.4
CONCLUSION For the foregoing reasons, PG&E respectfully requests that SED’s Rehearing Application be denied.

Proceeding Number A.15-07-019 DECISION ADDRESSING WRAM BALANCES, RATE DESIGN, CONSERVATION AND RATIONING RULES, AND OTHER ISSUES FOR THE MONTEREY DISTRICT

ABSTRACT: Re: Application of California-American Water Company (U210W) for Authorization to Modify Conservation and Rationing Rules, Rate Design, and Other Related Issues for the Monterey District, the PROPOSED DECISION, DECISION ADDRESSING WRAM BALANCES, RATE DESIGN, CONSERVATION AND RATIONING RULES, AND OTHER ISSUES FOR THE MONTEREY DISTRICT document copy is embedded. IT IS ORDERED that:
1. California-American Water Company shall, within 30 days of the date of this decision, file a Tier 2 advice letter in conformance with General Order 96-B. The advice letter shall request recovery of the 2013 and 2014 Water Revenue Adjustment Mechanism/Modified Cost Balancing Account balance for the Monterey District of $39.8 million authorized in this decision, to be recovered over five years with interest at the 90-day commercial paper rate. The recovery shall be by a fixed monthly surcharge assessed on the basis of meter size using standard meter ratios. The multiple volumetric surcharges now in place for this recovery shall be terminated concurrent with the advice letter becoming effective.
2. Future Water Revenue Adjustment Mechanism/Modified Cost Balancing Account advice letters filed and served by California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) for the Monterey District shall request recovery of under-collections (or refunds of over-collections) by a uniform surcharge (or surcredit) on each unit of water sold (volumetric rate) including Tier 1. Cal-Am shall provide customer notice of each such advice letter consistent with General Order (GO) 96-B. In addition, for each of the next three advice letter requests, Cal-Am shall notify all customers in the Monterey District by bill insert or direct mail of the request even if that notice is not otherwise required by GO 96-B. The Notice shall be approved by the Commission’s Public Advisor before it is issued by Cal-Am.
3. California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) shall, within 30 days of the date of this decision, file a Tier 2 advice letter in conformance with General Order 96-B. The advice letter shall include tariffs for the Monterey District that: (a) eliminate the residential allotment system, (b) recover 30 percent of residential customer fixed costs in the residential monthly service charge, (c) use the temporary modification to standard residential meter ratios recommended by Cal-Am for recovery of the increased percentage of fixed costs in the residential monthly service charge, (d) use the standardized residential rate design recommended by Cal-Am in which each customer gets the same amount of water in each tier at the tier break points and modified block widths, (e) reduce the multiple of Tier 5 to Tier 1 residential rates to 8 as proposed by Cal-Am, (f) use 2015 residential consumption data for rate development, (g) apply a 30 percent discount from the monthly service charge and the rates in Tier 1 through 4 for customers in the low income ratepayer assistance program, and (h) move 8.4 percent of forecast revenue collection from residential to non-residential customers. Cal-Am shall, and parties may, as soon as feasible, recommend elimination of the temporary modification to the standard residential meter ratios for recovery of the increased percentage of fixed costs in the residential monthly service charge.
4. California-American Water Company shall study the following issue and report its findings along with its recommendations in Application 16-07-002. The issue is the potential for automatic enrollment in the low income ratepayer assistance program, along with coordination with energy utilities, municipalities, and community based organizations to provide conservation information and tools to its customers.
5. The June 17, 2016 Motion for Adoption of Settlement Agreement Between California-American Water Company and Monterey Peninsula Water Management District on the Annual Consumption True-Up Pilot Program and on the Modifications to Monterey District Rule 14.1.1 and Tariff Schedule MO-14.1.1 is denied. California-American Water Company and parties are encouraged to file and serve a motion for Commission adoption of an improved annual consumption true-up pilot program, with the improvements incorporating those stated in the body of this decision as well as addressing the issues also stated in the body of the decision. That motion, if any, shall be filed and served within 60 days of the date of this decision. The Administrative Law Judge may extend the 60 day deadline for good cause.
6. California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) shall, within 30 days of the date of this decision, file a Tier 2 advice letter in conformance with General Order 96-B. The advice letter shall include a modified Monterey District Rule 14.1.1 and Tariff Schedule MO-14.1.1 that is consistent with the proposal attached to July 13, 2016 Reply Comments filed by Cal-Am and Monterey Peninsula Water Management District with one modification: Schedule 14.1.1 part B.4 (and related part(s) in Rule 14.1.1 if any) shall be modified to read: “Once the Schedule is activated, utility can implement Stages 2, 3, and 4 or change levels of the Emergency Conservation Rates, of the Schedule by filing a Tier 2 advice letter.”
7. Application 15-07-019 remains open to address (a) a motion, if filed, for Commission adoption of an improved annual consumption true-up pilot program, and (b) a penalty phase.

Carmel Art Association Presents GROUP SHOW 10 PERSPECTIVES – GROUP SCULPTURE SHOW & GALLERY SHOWCASE ALICIA MEHEEN ‘THE HIGH COUNTRY’ & GALLERY SHOWCASE TIM SLOAN

Carmel Art Association


Mission Statement: 
The Association exists to provide its members with a permanent art gallery, to advance knowledge of, and interest in the arts, and to create a spirit of cooperation and fellowship among artists and the community. 

A Proud Heritage: 
The legendary Carmel Art Association was formed on August 8, 1927 by a small group of artists who gathered at “Gray Gables,” the modest home/studio of Josephine Culbertson and Ida Johnson at the corner of Seventh and Lincoln in Carmel-by-the-Sea. These nineteen “pioneers”—who grew up in the 19th century and individually found their respective paths to Carmel from all corners of the world—each desired a greater sense of community, a spirit of collaboration, and a place to show their work. Before the meeting concluded, they had established an association with a mission “to advance art and cooperation among artists, secure a permanent exhibition space, and promote greater fellowship between artists and the public.”
