May 20, 2011 - Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report Updates

On May 20, 2011 a Notice of Intent (NOI) was published in the Federal Register and a Notice of Preparation (NOP) was submitted to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, State Clearinghouse to signify the start of the scoping period for the Draft Environmental Impact Statements/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the Sutter Basin Feasibility Study and Feather River West Levee Project.

An NOI and NOP are required by the National Environmental Policy Act and the California Environmental Quality Act, respectively. They provide the interested, responsible and trustee agencies and the Office of Planning and Research with information about the proposed project, the scoping process, possible alternatives, and potential environmental effects. This allows the notified agencies to submit a thoughtful response during the scoping period.

Please see the link below, Signed Notice of Preparation of Draft Environmental Impact Statements/Environmental Impact Reports for the Sutter Basin Feasibility Study and Feather River West Levee Project, for detailed information about the proposed project, the scoping process, possible alternatives, potential environmental effects and contact information. Links to maps of the two proposed project’s study areas are below.
