Yosemite Announces Extension To Comment Period For Communications Project

Sponsored by:

Yosemite National Park, CA — The National Park Service has extended the public scoping comment period for the Hetch Hetchy Communications System Upgrade Project by 14 days.

The proposed project would replace or update components of the communications system throughout Tuolumne County, including potentially adding one new site within Yosemite National Park and another new site within Stanislaus National Forest.

A system upgrade would improve radio communications vital to Hetch Hetchy Water &Power, Yosemite National Park, and Stanislaus National Forest operational activities such as law enforcement, search and rescue, fire management, and dam security.

The public review and comment period was initially scheduled for February 21st through March 27th. Comments will now be accepted through April 10th.
