Draft EIR (2022)

DWR prepared and released a Draft EIR for public review and comment July – December 2022 in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Draft EIR evaluated a range of alternatives to the proposed project and disclosed potential environmental effects of the proposed project and alternatives, and associated mitigation measures for potentially significant impacts. DWR is in the process of reviewing and responding to substantive comments received on the Draft EIR and plans to issue a Final EIR in late 2023. At that time, DWR will determine whether to approve the proposed project, an alternative or no project.
