Potential consequences of the MPM Alternative were evaluated relative to the No Action Alternative, which is continuation of current O&M activities. A Draft PEIS was released for a 45-day public review period on August 10, 2007. Comments on the Draft PEIS were received from four federal agencies, four California State agencies, the County of San Diego, the City of Imperial Beach, and two individual reviewers. Oral comments were also received from three presenters during a public hearing held in the City of Imperial Beach, California on August 30, 2007. The Notice of Availability of the Final PEIS was published in the Federal Register on May 14, 2008. Finding: Because of its potential to improve biological resources and environmental conditions, the MPM Alternative was identified as the preferred option for long-term improvement to the Tijuana River FCP. In implementing the MPM Alternative, the USIBWC will continue to improve functionality and maintenance of the Tijuana River FCP to meet its mandate for flood control while supporting regional initiatives for improvement of environmental conditions, including improved water quality and wildlife habitat development, both within the floodway and downstream from the Tijuana River FCP.
