State Water Interconnection
In January 2017, City Council authorized an agreement with Kennedy/Jenks Consultants to prepare an alignment study for the State Water Interconnection Pipeline. This agreement also included preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) of the preferred alignment.
On February 28, 2018, the City issued the Notice of Preparation (NOP) of a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the State Water Interconnection Project. The NOP was prepared to notify responsible and trustee agencies and the public that the environmental review process pursuant to CEQA has commenced. On March 15, 2018, a scoping meeting was held to solicit comments regarding the scope and content of the EIR. A matrix of issues and comments raised at the scoping meeting is provided in the June 2018 Scoping Report. It is anticipated the Draft EIR will be circulated for public review in November/December 2018.
