This revised Notice of Intent is to document a change in the schedule for the release of the FEIS. In the original NOI, dated September 15, 2003, the tentative date for release of the FEIS was September 2005; in the update to the NOI on December 29, 2005 the FEIS was scheduled for release in July, 2006.

A FEIS is expected to be completed by the end of October, 2007.
