§ 3775.5. Early Public Consultation.
(a) Prior to circulating the draft Substitute Environmental Documentation described in section 3777, the board shall seek early public consultation. Early public consultation may include one or more scoping meetings.
(b) The purpose of a scoping meeting is to seek input from public agencies and members of the public on the range of project actions, alternatives, reasonably foreseeable methods of compliance, significant impacts to be analyzed, cumulative impacts if any, and mitigation measures that will reduce impacts to a less than significant level; and to eliminate from detailed study issues found not to be important. Scoping may also assist in resolving concerns of affected federal, state, and local agencies, the proponent of the action, and other interested persons.
(c) Scoping meetings should be held in the watershed or general vicinity of where the project is to take place, if practicable. The board shall give notice of the time and location of the scoping meeting at least 10 days in advance of the meeting. Notice of a scoping meeting shall be posted on the board's website and should be provided to all of the following:
(1) Any county or city where the project is located;
(2) Any public agency that has jurisdiction by law with respect to the project; and
(3) Any organization or individual who has filed a written request for the notice.
