MBCA sends Comment Letter on Eagle Crest Transmission Line Environmental Assessment (EA)

MBCA, as part of a coalition of 7 other organizations and scientists, has sent a detailed Environmental Assessment Comment Letter to the BLM State Director Jerome Perez opposing the Eagle Crest Pumped Storage project and requesting a full Environmental Impact Study (EIS) instead of the planned and less comprehensive Environmental Assessment (EA) on the Transmission Line. It provides a thorough and detailed record of all the stages of insufficient analysis that have been completed for this project.  

The letter goes point by point through the regulatory processes to create a solid case for why the project would cause "profound harm . . . to Joshua Tree National Park, desert tortoise, golden eagle, bighorn sheep and regional grouter resources."
