LOS ANGELES CANCELS CADIZ UNDERGROUND WATER SUPPLY PROJECT
Los Angeles Metropolitan Water District board votes to cancel water supply project that would pump excess water under the Mojave Desert in wet years, and withdraw more in dry years, to serve southern California customers. Board cites environmental and financial risks. BLM had issued conditional right-of-way for the project's pipeline across public lands.
(Note: Many articles on this subject appeared in California and national media. This edition of News.bytes links to several of them.)

RECREATION ON PUBLIC LANDS: Northern California

"LOST COAST TRAIL IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART" (Contra Costa Times, 10/06/2002)
Section of Lost Coast Trail: springtime near the oceanFeature article: ""We were soon to discover the rugged terrain that defeated road builders can leave you exhausted from boot-grabbing wet sand, scaling wet rocks and boulders and rogue waves that can send you dashing for refuge with a 40-pound pack on your back .... I now clearly understand why Highway 1 turns several miles inland here. When Caltrans builders reached the Lost Coast, they abandoned hope of conquering the area."

HEADLINES AND HIGHLIGHTS

BLM AND CONTRACTORS RECOGNIZED FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTION
The Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP), San Diego Chapter recognized BLM and partners as finalists under the "Outstanding Environmental Solution" category, at their 2002 Awards. The BLM contracted with URS Corporation and Gallegos & Associates to prepare a GIS data base, biological monitoring plan, and cultural resource report for BLM's portion of the San Diego Multiple Species Conservation Program -- to protect 85 species in a preserve area of 170,000 acres. BLM's portion -- over 28,000 acres -- includes Otay Mountain Wilderness.
The nomination read, in part: "This project represents a unique solution ... over 30 public, private, and educational agencies were contacted and a complete GIS database was compiled and constructed to lay the foundation for the cultural and biological monitoring plans. Over 125 layers were incorporated into a functioning, east-to-use database. {Before GIS] ... studies of this type would have taken many hours of field research, analysis, and documentation. By using GIS technology, the planning efforts were advanced because data layers such as species, habitats, vegetation, and climate could be evaluated simultaneously. The GIS database is installed in all local BLM offices, allowing biologists, archaeologists, and planners easy access for key decision making for the Otay/Kuchamaa Management Area."

"ARCHAEOLOGISTS AND TRIBES TARGET SITES' PRESERVATION" (Palm Springs Desert Sun, 10/05/2002)
"Sunshine, mild winters and abundant fresh water made ... early civilization possible in the desert Southwest. American Indians and archaeologists ...hope... modern advancement in the Southern California and Arizona deserts won't erase the lessons left behind by ancestors." Says BLM archaeologist at meeting: ""People see the desert and think it is a wasteland .... What they don’t understand is the desert is one of the most sensitive environments we have."
