The lead state and federal agencies for the Bay Delta Conservation Plan to build the peripheral tunnels just announced that the public comment period for the draft plan and BDCP draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement has been extended, from June 13 to July 29. Below is the press release from the California Natural Resources Agency.
The agencies also released the draft Implementing Agreement for the BDCP today. The agreement is available here: http://baydeltaconservationplan.com/Libraries/Dynamic_Document_Library/Draft_Implementing_Agreement_5-30-14.sflb.ashx
The draft Bay Delta Conservation Plan and BDCP EIS/EIR and Implementing Agreement will not be translated into languages other than English, according to Richard Stapler of the California Natural Resources Agency. A coalition of fishing, conservation and environmental justice has requested the agencies to translate at least the Executive Summary into languages other than English.
