On July 17, 2018, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) published the California WaterFix Draft Supplemental EIR/EIS evaluating the proposed changes to the conveyance facilities in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is issuing the California WaterFix Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) for public review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Reclamation’s issuance of the California WaterFix Draft Supplemental EIR/EIS is the same document as was issued by DWR with the addition of a transmittal document that relates the proposed changes to the alternatives previously analyzed in the 2016 Final EIR/EIS. Public review of the California WaterFix Draft Supplemental EIR/EIS for compliance with NEPA begins on September 21, 2018, when the U.S Environmental Protection Agency posts the notice of availability in the Federal Register. The public comment period closes on November 5, 2018, at 5:00 p.m.
A hard copy of the document will be available at the Department of Water Resources, 3500 Industrial Blvd., Room 117, West Sacramento, CA 95691 and at the Bay-Delta Office, Mid-Pacific Region, Bureau of Reclamation, 801 I Street, Suite 140, Sacramento, CA 95814. The document is available electronically on the project website at www.californiawaterfix.com and will be at libraries in the project area. Electronic copies of the documents referenced in the Draft Supplemental EIR/EIS will be available at the DWR Office at 3500 Industrial Blvd., Room 117, West Sacramento, CA 95691.
All substantive comments received on the Draft Supplemental EIR/EIS will be responded to in the Final Supplemental EIR/EIS and considered in the decision-making process.
