The Draft desal EIR will be available for public and agency comment, beginning on May 13, 2013, and concluding on August 12, 2013. CEQA only requires a 45 day public review period for Draft EIRs submitted to the State Clearinghouse for review (PRC Section 21091), however given the public interest in the proposed project, the lead agencies have decided to provide a longer comment period.
