Estuary Project Final EIR Released!

By Brenda Adelman

The Estuary Project Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was released on July 28, 2011.  This is the project that plans to close the mouth of the river every summer to supposedly provide Steelhead habitat for the threatened fish.  While it is incredibly important to do everything we can to save the fish, those of us who have studied the proposal believe this project will cause more harm than good.
