On Friday, June 29, the Alpine County Board of Supervisors approved the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR). This FEIR was prepared for the Bear Valley Village Project. This FEIR consists of two volumes: Volume I, containing the Draft EIR as revised, and Volume II, containing the responses to comments, the mitigation monitoring and reporting program, and technical appendices that were not available when the Draft EIR was prepared. Appendices that were provided in the Draft EIR are not included in the Final EIR distribution. These appendices are available for review at the Alpine County Planning Department in Markleeville, California.
The most comprehensive survey ever of pollutants in California's lakes and reservoirs has found that only a few of the most popular fishing spots are free of mercury, PCBs and other contaminants. Of 152 lakes tested statewide, 21 were clean while 131 showed one or more pollutants at levels above state health guidelines, according to the study released Monday by the State Water Resources Control Board.
In Northern California, some of the cleanest were the high-elevation lakes of the Sierra Nevada and the Trinity Alps. Among these are our own Lake Alpine and White Pines Lake, making the cut well above nearby Caples Lake, Donner Lake, Lake Tahoe and Pinecrest Lake.
The Alpine CountyPlanning Department has released a Fiscal Impact Analysis on the proposed village development. It is not part of the Environmental Impact Report or part of the EIR Process. It is a separate study prepared under the county's direction. There is no specific comment period on this document. It will be used by the county in deliberations on the proposed project. The appropriate time to comment will be during the public hearing processes on components of the project after completion of the EIR process. To read or download the document click here.
