The Draft EIR for the Ocean Water Desalination Project was published in the spring of 2018 and evaluated the potential environmental impacts of constructing and operating the potential Project. The report also identified mitigation strategies to avoid, minimize, or compensate those impacts. During the extended 91 day public comment period, West Basin received 213 regulatory agency and public comments. The Final EIR was released on October 23, 2019 and provides detailed responses to each of these comments, in addition to four supplemental research studies requested by the regulatory agencies, in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
