DWR plans to assess changes to primary and secondary productivity resulting from new operations as part of the analysis in the EIR. Operations and maintenance of the fish screens would be intended to minimize the buildup of biological material on the screen itself. If additional needs or details with regard to finer-scale food web changes associated with the project are identified through the scoping process or the effects analysis, those will be considered as well. This comment is related to the scope of DWR’s EIR; please consider submitting this comment through DWR’s CEQA scoping process.
