On August 21, 2009, the Warner Valley Comprehensive Site Plan/Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) was released for a 90-day public review period, closing on November 21, 2009. Three public open houses were hosted; on September 2 in Chester, September 3 in Anderson, and September 8 in Vacaville. Copies of the Draft EIS were available for review at local libraries and the open houses, and an electronic version was posted at both Lassen Volcanic National Park’s Web site http://www.nps.gov/lavo/ parkmgmt/index.htm and the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment Web site http://parkplanning. nps.gov. A total of 33 comment letters were received, including from Greenville Rancheria, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, the Northern Sierra Air Quality District, the Almanor Basin Fire Safe Council, and assorted letters from groups and individuals. Topics mentioned most frequently included: Restoration of Drakesbad Meadow; removal of Dream Lake Dam; alternative energy use; changes to campgrounds and redesign of trails and pathways; proposed new concessioner employee housing; and relocation of the volleyball court. Personal letters conveyed opinions both in favor and against actions proposed—some of these comments arose out of interest in preserving Drakesbad Guest Ranch in its present condition without any significant changes. Agencies provided information regarding regulatory requirements and permitting. Comments and responses are detailed in Chapter 6 of the Final EIS. Supplementary Information: The Final EIS will be distributed in the same manner as the Draft EIS. In addition to this announcement, availability of the document will be publicized through local and regional press media. The document will be available at park headquarters and at local public libraries, and an electronic version will also be posted on the Lassen Volcanic National Park and NPS Web sites (see above).
