The City of Los Angeles, Department of Public Works, Bureau of Sanitation (BOS) is the Lead Agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and will prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed Hyperion Treatment Plant (HTP) Digester Gas Utilization project. HTP is a City-owned and operated wastewater treatment facility, located at 12000 Vista del Mar within Playa del Rey. Currently, digester gas (digas) produced at HTP is treated and then piped to Scattergood Generating Station. The interagency agreement for the supply of digas to the Scattergood will end on January 31, 2015. Therefore, the City is considering internal modifications to HTP to beneficially use the digas in a digas/natural gas-fueled combined cycle cogeneration facility to be located within the boundaries of HTP. This would allow HTP to operate independent of the electrical grid and would provide steam needed for wastewater treatment.
A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) is available for review at the El Segundo Library (111 W. Mariposa Avenue, El Segundo); El Segundo City Clerk (350 Main St); Playa Vista Library (6400 Playa Vista Dr, Los Angeles; Westchester Loyola Village Library (7114 West Manchester Ave, Los Angeles); Westchester Senior Center (8470 Lincoln Blvd, Los Angeles); Lloyd Taber Library (4533 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey); Los Angeles Council District 11 Field Office (7166 West Manchester Blvd, Westchester); Los Angeles City Clerk (200 N.

Broadway, Los Angeles); through the link below or by contacting Kris Flaig (email@example.com or at 213-847-5883).
A public workshop to discuss the analysis and conclusions of the DEIR will be held at 6:00 PM on June 19, 2013, at the El Segundo Public Library, Friends of the Library Meeting Room, 111 West Mariposa Avenue, El Segundo.
