The Commission staff is excited to announce the completion of a draft public access guide to California's navigable waters. California is known for its unique waterbodies and the abundant recreation opportunities they support, such as kayaking the tranquil waters of Mono Lake, fishing in Lake Tahoe, sailing in San Francisco Bay, rafting the whitewater rapids of the American River, or surfing the powerful Pacific Ocean waves. The public's legal rights to access these and other navigable waters, however, are often misunderstood. Through this guide, the Commission seeks to provide an enhanced understanding of the public's rights to access and use California's navigable waters. The Commission staff invites you to review this guide and submit comments, by October 25th, 2017, to Patrick Huber at CSLC.PublicAccess@slc.ca.gov or 100 Howe Avenue Suite 100-S, Sacramento, CA 95825. After incorporating public input, staff will present the final draft to the Commission for consideration and approval at its November 2017 meeting.
The Commission selected Beacon West Energy Group as its contractor to operate and maintain Platform Holly and the Ellwood Onshore Facility for the purposes of plugging and abandoning the 32 wells on Platform Holly and the Ellwood Beach Pier. On September 15, 2017, Beacon West, under the Commission's oversight, took over day-to-day management of Platform Holly and the Ellwood Facility.
