SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Reclamation announced today an extension of the comment period for the public scoping process on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Remanded Biological Opinions (BOs) on the Coordinated Long-Term Operation of the Central Valley Project and State Water Project to June 28, 2012. The public scoping comment period was originally scheduled to end on May 29, 2012. Reclamation published the Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register on March 28, 2012 (77 FR 18858).
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California remanded portions of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) BOs to their respective agencies. This EIS responds to the District Court’s order that Reclamation analyze and disclose, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the potential impacts of implementing the Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives developed pursuant to the remanded USFWS and NMFS BOs.
