In 1970, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) became state law. CEQA requires state and local agencies within California to analyze proposed projects that may have a significant environmental impact and conduct environmental review. The District has prepared an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) detailing potential environmental impacts and outlining measures to avoid or mitigate significant impacts, if feasible.
What is the purpose on an EIR?
An EIR is for project decision-makers and the public to understand environmental impacts of a proposed project and review plans to mitigate those impacts. Learn More.
