Public meeting schedule announced for suction dredge EIR review in California

November 30, 2010

The California Department of Fish & Game has announced a public meeting schedule for review and comments on the Environmental Impact Report for suction gold dredging in California.  Comments are typically limited to 3 minutes per person at these meetings.

We will certainly let our readers know when the EIR is available for review, which should be later this month.
