On Monday, 11/30, a number of UVEF members met with Tim Garcia, Deputy Dir. of the FFSL. We made it very plain that we fully expect there to be a thorough, rigorous, impartial EIS (environmental impact statement) equivalent to a full NEPA-required EIS on all the effects to the environment that any bridge project might have BEFORE any decision is rendered as to approving or disapproving a bridge. We also indicated that we will carefully monitor the process to help ensure that the Lake and its ecosystem are protected and not exploited.
The event was covered by the TRIB, the DesNews and Channel 2. KUER did a 45 minute interview with the UVEF Chair related to the event.
