Released On: February 16, 2005
Reclamation is conducting the VSP process in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. The Notice of Availability for the DEIS was published in the Federal Register on October 31, 2003. The public review period, originally scheduled to close on February 4, 2004, was then extended twice, through April 22, 2004. This most recent comment period extends from February 16, 2005, through April 4, 2005.
Since the late 1950s, seven concessionaires have had contracts with Reclamation to manage recreation at Lake Berryessa. Six of the contracts expire in 2008-2009; Pleasure Cove Resort's Interim Contract expires in December 2005. The purpose of the VSP is to develop a comprehensive plan for the re-development and management of visitor services that support diverse recreational opportunities at the lake in compliance with applicable Federal, State, and local laws, regulations, policies, and codes.
