Written Comments, Questions and Answers received during the October 28, 2020 Online Engagement Panel Webinar Meeting:

It seems that the breakwater is potentially beneficial for decommissioning, could be a future resource, and would be costly to remove. What arguments (if any) are there for removing the breakwater?

Response 1 - Thanks David — the Panel has sponsored a few meetings now and a workshop on the topic, and we haven’t heard any arguments for the removal, actually. The issue seems to be whether some entity will step forward with a vision for the repurposing of the breakwater. Absent that, the breakwater may have to be removed, per the statement made by Cheryl from the State Lands Commission tonight.

Response 2 - I concur with Kara’s answer. However, the base terms of the state lease require removal unless the state relieves PG&E of that obligation.
