SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pacific Gas & Electric Co., the nation's largest utility, has agreed to pay up to $190 million to clean up and revitalize a San Francisco harbor that was polluted by a long-closed gas plant.

The agreement, announced Friday by City Attorney Dennis Herrera, involves the Marina Small Craft Harbor, which is the city's oldest recreational marina.

The city sued PG&E in 2001 over pollution from a coal gasification plant near the harbor that closed nearly 90 years ago. The settlement requires approval from the Board of Supervisors.
