Notice; announcement meeting.
This notice announces the Eighth Meeting of the Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force. The purpose of this Task Force, consisting of federal, state, and tribal members, is to lead efforts to coordinate and support nutrient management and hypoxia-related activities in the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico watersheds. The major matter to be discussed at the meeting is the implementation of the Action Plan for Reducing, Mitigating, and Controlling Hypoxia in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. The Plan was developed in fulfillment of a requirement of section 604(b) of the Harmful Algal Blooms and Hypoxia Research Control Act (Pub. L. 105-383—Coast Guard Authorization Act of 1998) and was submitted as a Report to Congress on January 18, 2001. The public will be afforded an opportunity to provide input to the Task Force during open discussion periods. The meeting coincides with a meeting of the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission in the vicinity, and will afford opportunities for exchange between the participants of both meetings. The meeting room accommodates approximately 125 people.
The two-day meeting will be held from 2 p.m.-5:30 p.m., February 7, 2002 and from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m., February 8, 2002.
