SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The RMP/ EIS is to guide future land resources management to ensure land and waters of the United States are maintained and protected as provided for under the authorizing purposes over a given period of time. This process is intended to establish uniform policy and land management guidelines that promote an organized use, development, and management of the Contra Loma Reservoir and the surrounding recreational area lands. These areas will be compatible with scenic surroundings and applicable Federal and State laws. An RMP incorporates into one document all the information pertinent to the future guidance of a management area and may serve as the basis for future resource decision making for the management area. The RMP is to chart the biological, physical, and social condition that Reclamation desires to see once all the RMP management actions have been implemented. In addition, the RMP provides sufficient detailed ways to efficiently and equitably provide recreational opportunities to meet public demand within its intended planning lifespan. This RMP/EIS will be used to develop an integrated document that fulfills the requirements of an RMP and an EIS for the Contra Loma Reservoir and Recreation Area, Resource Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement.
