SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - San Luis Obispo County supervisors are opposed to high-energy offshore seismic testing near a California central coast nuclear power plant.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. wants to use big air guns to emit strong sound waves into a large area off the Diablo Canyon plant, an area that includes parts of marine reserves, to make three-dimensional maps of fault zones.
A state environmental impact analysis says the tests would likely adversely affect marine life and the environment.
The San Luis Obispo County Tribune (http://bit.ly/SvB80x ) says supervisors heard more than four hours of impassioned pleas from residents before voting Tuesday to oppose the tests.
The board's objections will be forwarded to the California Coastal Commission, which is considering PG&E's plans at a Nov. 14 meeting in Santa Monica.
