In response to public comments and Lahontan Water Board direction, PG&E's Groundwater Background Study Report, Hinkley Compressor Station, Hinkley, California (called the 2007 Background Study Report) was submitted for scientific peer review in August 2011. Lahontan Water Board staff transmitted a formal request to the State Water Board in May 2011 to initiate the selection of appropriate reviewers through the California Environmental Protection Agency's scientific peer review program. More information on the Cal/EPA peer review process is available on the State Water Board's Website.
