Water Shortage Policy Workshop Set for June 4

The Bureau of Reclamation will hold a public workshop on the Mid-Pacific Region’s Municipal and Industrial Water Shortage Policy on June 4 in Sacramento.

Since mid-2010, Reclamation has held several stakeholder workshops and public scoping meetings to solicit public input on the updated M&I WSP and to receive comment on the scope of a proposed Environmental Impact Statement. The proposed draft EIS is being prepared and will be used to analyze the potential effects of implementing the updated M&I WSP.

At the workshop, Reclamation will present and discuss the proposed alternatives that will be considered and analyzed in the EIS. Technical evaluation tools, assumptions and other related information will also be shared. Participants will have the opportunity to provide comment and input to Reclamation that will be considered in the analyses and EIS. The draft EIS is anticipated to be available in April 2013.

Monday, June 4, 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
2800 Cottage Way, Sacramento
Cafeteria Conference Rooms C-1001 and C-1002
