    Public Scoping for the San Gabriel River Confluence with Cattle Canyon Improvements Project

    The WCA in partnership with the Angeles National Forest [ANF] San Gabriel Mountains National Monument invites you to comment on the scope and content of the environmental impact assessment that will be conducted for the San Gabriel River Confluence with Cattle Canyon Improvements Project. For more information and to review a description of the proposed action, visit the project webpage at www.wca.ca.gov/cattle_canyon

What mitigation measures would help avoid or minimize any negative impacts?
