The Santa Margarita Water District (SMWD) published a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) on the Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery, and Storage Project (Project) on December 5, 2011. Presently the comment period closes on February 13, 2012, or the 70th day. Although the initial comment period exceeded the minimal time requirements set forth under the California Environmental Quality Act, SMWD has received several requests to further extend the comment period. In response to these requests and in recognition of the importance of providing ample review of the Project, SMWD is extending the comment period an additional 30 days, bringing the total public review period to 100 days. The comment period on the DEIR will now close on March 14, 2012. Please send your written comments, including a return address and contact name, on or before this date to the following address:
