ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEWS
for
METRO GOLD LINE FOOTHILL EXTENSION (FOOTHILL GOLD LINE) FROM AZUSA TO MONTCLAIR (GLENDORA TO MONTCLAIR) PROJECT

Under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), public agencies are charged with the duty to avoid or substantially lessen significant environmental impacts of a project where feasible. This process is undertaken through an Environmental Impact Report (EIR), an assessment that identifies any potentially significant impacts of a proposed project on the environment. The EIR indicates the manner in which those significant impacts can be avoided or significantly lessened; identifies any significant and unavoidable adverse impacts that cannot be mitigated; and identifies reasonable and feasible alternatives to the proposed project that would eliminate any significant adverse environmental impacts or reduce the impacts to a less-than significant level. See below for previously approved environmental reviews and any currently underway.
