Lodi Council approves Wildfire Mitigation Plan
LODI — The Lodi Electric Utility Wildfire Mitigation Plan was approved by the Lodi City Council during the Wednesday night City Council meeting at Carnegie Forum in Lodi.
The Wildfire Mitigation Plan was drafted by LEU staff, following the passage of Senate Bill 901, which was signed into law by former Gov. Jerry Brown.
The law required all utilities to establish wildfire mitigation plans. The plans must be filed with the California Public Utilities Commission by Jan. 1, 2020.
Since the Lodi Electric Utility did not have an existing wildfire mitigation plan, staff drafted a plan that was reviewed by an independent evaluator from Navigant Consulting Inc.
Navigant concluded their review and determined that the LEU Wildfire Mitigation Plan is both comprehensive and in compliance with SB901.
