The Draft BDCP and associated Draft EIR/EIS were made available for public review and comment from December 13, 2013 through July 29, 2014. The public comment period is now closed.
Below please find comments received during this comment period. An index is provided to locate comment letters by author/organization. See Part 2-1 for a version of these files that meets the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended in 1998. This section requires federal agencies to make all electronic documents and data accessible to people with disabilities in a manner comparable to those without disabilities. This section requires that documents should be able to be read with screen readers.
Comment letters, emails, and other written or transcribed comments were assigned an identifying Letter Number as they were received and processed by the lead agencies. Letters received on the 2013 Draft EIR/EIS were given a number starting with “BDCP” as an identifier. This is found most prominently in Appendix A-1 of Volume II. When California WaterFix (Alternative 4A) replaced the BDCP as the preferred alternative, the lead agencies began identifying these letters as DEIRS letters. The lead agencies made efforts to consistently refer to the letters as DEIRS letters, but there may be instances where letters still contain the “BDCP” identifier. Therefore, readers should note that “BDCP” and “DEIRS” are interchangeable when used in front of a letter number. For example, BDCP 3 and DEIRS 3 are the same letter.
