EBCNPS has submitted written comments for the Draft Environmental Impact Report of the Tres Vaqueros Windfarm project which is located next to the Los Vaqueros Reservoir in Contra Costa County.  The project would involve removing old wind towers and restoring those sites.  New towers will be installed with an accompanying 13 miles of new roads that cross sensitive habitat.  Our comments include requesting complete biological surveys (at the appropriate time of year) be carried out to determine the baseline conditions of the site, performance standards for any restoration of decommissioned areas, and a complete weed management plan as part of the final EIR.

Our comment letter can be viewed here:  EBCNPS_TresVaquerosWindfarm_DEIR_Response_Letter_7_19_11

We will keep you updated as this project moves forward.
