Feinstein 'stunned' by data manipulation allegations
POINT REYES, Calif. (KGO) -- The controversy over the future of an oyster farm in the Point Reyes National Seashore is heating up.
Wednesday, it was revealed that the National Park Service failed to properly attribute data in an environmental review. That review will ultimately determine the fate of the Drake's Bay Oyster Company in Marin County.
The report led readers to believe that audio levels of farm equipment were actually much higher. This isn't the first time scientific research by the park service has been questioned.
In a letter to the secretary of the interior sent Thursday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said "I am frankly stunned that after all the controversy over past abuse of science on this issue, park service employees would feel emboldened to once again fabricate the science in building a case against the oyster farm."
The park service and Department of the Interior declined to comment.
