EBMUD TO DEVELOP MASTER PLAN FOR LANDS

 OAKLAND, Calif., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) will begin a series of meetings this month to develop guidelines of a master plan for its 28,000 acres of East Bay watershed lands.
 Meetings on July 15, 17 and 20 will help determine the scope of the master plan and the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) that will accompany it.
 The July 15 meeting, which will be directed at agencies and organizations, will be held in the EBMUD Administration Building second floor training room at 375 11th St. in Oakland.
 Public input will be sought on Saturday, July 17, from 9:30 a.m. to noon, at the San Leandro City Council Chambers, 835 E. 14th St., San Leandro. Another public meeting will be held July 20, at Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School auditorium, 1010 Camino Pablo, in Moraga.
 The scoping meetings will provide an opportunity early in the process for the public to learn about the planning process and identify issues and concerns related to resource protection, ecosystem management, recreation and land use.
 Each meeting will begin with a slide presentation which provides an overview of the EBMUD lands in Contra Costa and Alameda counties and a description of the East Bay Watershed Master Plan and EIR. Examples will be given of issues which will be explored during the planning process and key subject areas which will be addressed. Participants are invited to identify any other issues of concern related to watershed uses. Input from the communities will ensure that EBMUD addresses the full range of issues involved in the master plan development.
 The plan will be developed in three phases. During Phase I, the district will assess and identify protection measures for the biological, cultural and physical resources of the watershed and reevaluate current land use practices. In Phase II, the district will review and evaluate public use of the watersheds, including its connection with urban areas and proposed new land uses.
 Phase III will use information gathered and developed during the first two phases in preparing the draft and final Master Plan and EIR.
