The Sites Project Authority (Authority) is the lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) on the proposal to construct and operate a new off-stream water storage reservoir and associated facilities. The first step in the environmental review process is issuance of a Notice of Preparation, which the Authority released on January 31, 2017, indicating their intent to prepare an EIR.
