The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Climate Action Plan
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation

Document Description
Metropolitan is preparing a Program EIR for a Climate Action Plan (CAP) that will outline a strategy for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with future construction, operation, and maintenance activities. The CAP is a roadmap that analyzes historical and forecasts future GHG emissions; sets a GHG reduction target for reducing emissions consistent with state policies; and identifies a suite of reduction actions that Metropolitan can choose from to achieve the adopted target consistent with Section 15183.5 of the CEQA Guidelines. The CAP is a customized roadmap for making informed decisions and understanding where and how to achieve emissions reductions that conform to Metropolitan’s mission/goals in a meaningful and cost-effective manner. While a CAP identifies potential projects that may be implemented to meet GHG reduction goals, no specific projects will be implemented without further CEQA review. Please see Summary document for additional project description and location information.
