How You Can Take Action
Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary has developed a draft environmental assessment (EA) to analyze the potential impacts of a slant test well project proposed by California American Water, a privately-owned water and wastewater company. The proposed project described in the EA has been evaluated for consistency with the National Marine Sanctuaries Act, sanctuary goals and objectives, and permitting regulations. The draft EA is available for download on the MBNMS website. Public comments will be accepted through July 25, 2014. For more information and to submit your comments electronically, go to www.regulations.gov and identify the docket number NOAA-NOS-2014-0078 for this action.
