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.
