Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: California American Water Company proposes to remove San Clemente Dam and reroute the Carmel River, as described in Alternative 3 of the 2008 Final Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS). This project was revised and potential new impacts and mitigation measures were described in the April 2012 Supplement to the EIR (April 2012 SEIR). This Draft Supplement No. 2 to the Final EIR (DSEIR No. 2) has been prepared to describe a further refinement to the project, the removal of OCRD, analyze potential impacts associated with the change to the project, and propose mitigation for those impacts. The project refinement described in DSEIR No.2 would consist of removing OCRD entirely and restoring the Carmel River in the vicinity of the dam to a natural state. The 2008 Final EIR/EIS and the April 2012 SEIR analyzed leaving OCRD in place, but cutting a 19 foot wide by 9 foot deep notch in the dam. As with the Proposed Project described in the 2008 Final EIR/EIS and the revised Project described in the April 2012 SEIR, the project with the refinement described in this DSEIR No. 2 will meet the stated purpose and objectives by improving fish passage in the Carmel River.
