The meetings are scheduled for today, at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) at the Prado Dam Resident Office visitor center, 2493 Pomona-Rincon Road, Corona, California.

Col. Aaron Barta, commander of the Corps’ Los Angeles District and project representatives will be available during the meetings to provide information about the study, said USACE in its release.

USACE has completed a Draft Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report for the Prado Basin Ecosystem Restoration and Water Conservation Integrated Feasibility Study.

The Prado Basin study area, which includes a portion of the Santa Ana River downstream of the Prado Basin reservoir, encompasses portions of Riverside County, San Bernardino County and Orange County, California.

USACE’s Los Angeles District is the lead Federal Agency and the Orange County Water District is the lead State Agency for this study.

The Draft FR/EIS/EIR presents the plan formulation undertaken to develop feasible alternatives and also assesses the potential environmental impacts associated with implementation of the proposed project alternatives.
