Send your comments to the State Water Control Board before the May 30, 2018, deadline. Your comments are especially important in light of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife permit vacated earlier this week by the court. As deficiencies in federal permits come to light, the State Water Board’s review of Nationwide Permit 12 is crucial. A condition of the Nationwide Permit 12 is that developers hold a valid biological opinion and take statement from the Fish and Wildlife Service, a permit that is now invalid.
Where to send your comments? What to say? Specific streams or wetlands to mention? See our May 4, 2018, post.
