 BACKGROUND:
 In 1991, the Peabody Coal and Black Mesa Pipeline Companies produced and transported a record 5.1 million tons of coal through 275 miles of slurry pipeline (originating on the Navajo and Hopi Indian Reservations near Kayenta, Ariz.), using 10 percent less slurry water than in 1988, thus helping to conserve Navajo and Hopi water. Edison's Mohave Power Project also set a record last year by generating 4 percent more electricity than the previous record year of 1988, while using 11 percent less water at the station than in 1988.
 The Navajo and Hopi provide access to large coal deposits and well water at the Black Mesa Site. The Mohave Power Project is located near the booming resort city of Laughlin, Nev. -- just across the Colorado River from Bullhead City, Ariz.
 CONTACT: Kevin Kelley, 818-302-2255, or Al Lenhart, 702-298-1150, both of Southern California Edison.
