The date for public comment on Devil's Gate Dam's pending sediment removal and draft environment impact report was extended due to high volume of content and requests for additional time to review the plan, according to Los Angeles County Public Works.
The county's proposed project would remove 2.4 to 4 million cubic yards of sediment from the dam that built up following the 2009 Station fire. The removal process would occur over a five-year period and has received public protest in the past month.
Public comments will be accepted for 15 more days through Tuesday, Jan. 21. Community responses were originally planned to end on Monday.
Comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, mailed to County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works, Attn: Water Resources Division, Reservoir Cleanouts, P.O. Box 1460 Alhambra, CA 91802-9974, or faxed to (626) 979-5436.
