CPUC Proposes Decision to Require Communication Companies to Share More with Local Governments in Po

News from the CPUC:

The California Public Utilities Commission issued a proposed decision recently that would adopt new post-disaster community engagement and reporting requirements for investor-owned utilities and facilities-based telecommunications service providers in California.

Among other requirements, within 15 days of being allowed access into damaged areas after a State or Federally declared disaster, telecommunications providers must provide the CPUC and the appropriate local or tribal government a report including the following details:

  • A report of what facilities or equipment was damaged;
  • Restoration and/or rebuild plans, including a description of what is being repaired, replaced or added, and maps of where the restoration will occur;
  • The date the facilities-based wireline or wireless provider received access to the damaged area;
  • The timeline to make repairs;
  • Any changes to any energy/communication infrastructure required; and
  • The contact information of the individual responsible for community engagement in these instances.

The proposed decision, part of a broader ongoing Rulemaking (R.20-09-001) addressing broadband issues, has no legal effect unless approved by the Commission as a whole. This item may be heard, at the earliest, at the Commission’s Oct. 21 Business Meeting. Formal comments for the proceeding’s record are due on Oct. 6.
