Carmel River Free Project
The 45-day public comment period for the Carmel River Floodplain Restoration and Environmental Enhancement (Carmel River FREE) project’s Environmental Impact Report and Environmental Assessment is open through April 22, 2019.
The document provides state environmental review in an Environmental Impact Report (per the California Environmental Quality Act requirements - CEQA) and federal review in an Environmental Assessment (per the National Environmental Policy Act - NEPA).
Big Sur Land Trust and the County of Monterey are co-sponsoring the landmark Carmel River FREE project – one of the most extensive and important multi-benefit flood protection and riparian habitat restoration efforts on the Central Coast. Using a nature-based green infrastructure solution, it will reclaim the southern floodplain to direct water away from developed areas north of the river.
Another example of Big Sur Land Trust's long-term commitment to conservation and land in service of community, Carmel River FREE will restore habitat and help significantly reduce flood risks for homes and businesses in the lower Carmel River watershed. In addition, new trails will connect Palo Corona Regional Park with the Carmel River State Beach and Lagoon. Learn more.
