IMPACT OF ALISO CANYON
The Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility is a critical gas supply resource necessary for a reliable fuel supply to LADWP’s power generators. Due to a natural gas leak at Aliso Canyon, there is a moratorium on new injections of gas into the facility until the wells have passed comprehensive tests or been isolated, and deemed safe. This uncertain status will make it challenging to maintain electric reliability this summer, due to the fact that gas is needed at 17 generating plants in the greater Los Angeles area. LADWP is doing everything possible to reduce and avoid electrical interruptions while Aliso Canyon undergoes the necessary safety review. These challenges and mitigation measures are described in the Aliso Canyon Action Plan.
