August 2009 Read the CDFA's Draft EIR

July 30/31, 2009
CDFA's Environmental Impact Report will be released tomorrow 7/31/09 and to no surprise, they concluded that their LBAM eradication program including the aerial spraying that made so many sick and killed so many birds, had no negative impacts. Listen to 8 minute audio of the CDFA's statements about how great their program is.

----------2008-------
The USDA and the CDFA are both are calling for public comments/question for their environmental impact reports. These reports assess the proposed actions that an agency or corporation wants to take. In most cases these reports are completed prior to the action proposed. However in the case of this aerial spraying, in California the USDA and the CDFA had decided to spray first and then evaluate.

Part of this evaluation process calls for public questions. The public question period is only open for 30 days. Both agencies have, by no coincidence, opened the public comment period at the same time. The CDFA had conducted a series of open house sessions to hear community comments unlike the USDA. The announcement that the USDA had opened their public comment period for their "Environmental Assessment" EA was buried in a 100-page document.

These agencies are required to take into account and show that they have addressed the concerns of the community. We must put in writing our concerns about their actions and ask them questions. These agencies are required by law to address your concerns.

We must submit questions / comments because it will show that we are greatly opposed to this aerial spray operation and have valid concerns.

Deadline to submit questions / comments for the CDFA is March 20, 2008
