State agency calls out USNPS for failing to file water quality reports on ranching at Point Reyes NS

A plan the National Park Service developed at Point Reyes National Seashore to manage cattle operations could be derailed by the California Coastal Commission because of the Park Service's failure to produce promised reports on dealing with the water quality impacts from the livestock operations.

Before the plan was adopted last year, outside groups claimed the 24 cattle and dairy operations operating in the seashore pollute and adversely impact the environment (water quality, methane emissions, erosion, fish habitat), the infrastructure (pavement degradation from milk trucks), and recreational opportunities at the seashore.
