• Notice of comment period extension for CalAm proposed desalination project

    On January 13, 2017, the CPUC and MBNMS published a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR)/Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) as required for permission to build and operate the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project (MBNMS).  The agencies originally provided a 45-day period for the public to review and comment on the DEIR/DEIS. The agencies now find it appropriate to extend the comment period by an additional 30 days.  The comment period will now close at 5:00pm on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.

    The agencies must review the proposed project under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) before making a decision on the proposal.
