Wildfire Mitigation Plan

State law requires all electric utilities to adopt a wildfire mitigation plan (WMP) to minimize the risk of overhead electric lines causing a catastrophic wildfire, which the CIty adopted its first annual WMP on November 5, 2020. State law further requires that the first WMP be reviewed by an independent third party whose report and findings were presented to the City Council, which was completed on June 2, 2020.
