Document Description
The EBWMP was first adopted by EBMUD Board of Directors (Board) in 1996. At that time, the board certified a Programmatic Environmental Impact Report that evaluated potential environmental impacts of the EBWMP in accordance with CEQA. EBMUD has prepared an Update to the EBWMP to reflect land management experience and actions taken since the EBWMP adoption, acknowledge changing management challenges, and address public concern regarding pesticide use on watershed lands. Specifically, the Update addresses: 1) "emerging challenges" which include climate change, invasive species, pathogens (e.g., Sudden Oak Death), contaminants, and limited capacity for trench soil management; these will be addressed through adaptive management practices and the decision to eliminate pesticides where feasible; and 3) changes to the access policy for the watershed trail system, providing access to bicycles and other users on 7.5 miles of trail in the Pinole Valley and on the Eagle's Nest trail.
