Update on EIR Comments Received
With over 400 comments received on the proposed regional scwd2 Desalination Project Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR), staff and consultants are still continuing to process all the comments to complete the scwd2 Draft EIR Public Review Summary Report. Processing of the comments has taken some time because written comments were submitted in many different forms (email, fax, regular mail) and additional work was needed to catalog, remove duplications, etc. to prepare the summary report so the public can navigate through the comment letters. This summary report will be posted on the project website in mid-October.
While the summary report will include all of the noticing, mailers, public meeting handouts/presentations, and the oral and written comments received, it will not include responses to the comments. The EIR team will need more time to conduct any additional studies and prepare responses.
