Technical Working Groups (TWG)
The TWG process is open to all interested parties including public agencies, Native American tribes, and not-for-profit organizations, as well as individuals. Participants are expected to make a significant time commitment to prepare for and attend meetings, review documents, and provide technical input to SCE and its consultants on methods, analysis, and interpretation in a timely fashion. In light of this time commitment, it is expected that the TWG process will attract a relatively small number of subject matter experts. SCE will also support a concurrent but separate outreach effort to provide information about the relicensing to the interested public as well as stakeholders electing not to participate in the TWG process via electronic communication and updates to the Project website.
For additional information on the TWG process, see the TWG Charter Document in the Project Materials list below.
To be included in the TWG process please contact Carissa Shoemaker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
