Federal, State Agencies Release Environmental Document on Suisun Marsh
Habitat Management, Preservation, and Restoration Plan

 

The Bureau of Reclamation and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in partnership
with the California Department of Fish and Game, have made available for
public review an environmental document on the Suisun Marsh Habitat
Management, Preservation and Restoration Plan.  The agencies also have
scheduled two public meetings to answer questions and are accepting written
comments on the environmental document.

 

The Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (Draft
EIS/EIR) assesses a comprehensive 30-year plan designed to address use of
resources within about 60,000 acres of wetlands in the Suisun Marsh near
Fairfield, California.  The focus of the plan is a mutually agreed upon
multi-stakeholder approach to the restoration of tidal wetlands and the
enhancement of managed wetlands.  Once in place, the plan will help in the
recovery of endangered species and increase tidal marsh habitat to benefit
all.  

 

Federal and state agencies prepared a joint Draft EIS/EIR in accordance with
the National Environmental Policy Act and California Environmental Quality
Act.  The lead agencies have collaboratively prepared the environmental
documents with the National Marine Fisheries Service, the California
Department of Water Resources, and the Suisun Resource Conservation
District.

 

The two public meetings have been scheduled on November 18 to receive
written comments regarding environmental effects:

*	2 p.m. - 4 p.m. at Rush Ranch, 3521 Grizzly Island Road, Suisun
City, CA 94585.
*	6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Benicia Public Library, Dona Benicia Meeting
Room, 150 East L Street, Benicia, CA 94510.
