Notice for additional public commenting opportunity on the water quality analysis portion of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS).
The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, is announcing the opportunity to provide additional comments on the water quality analysis portion of the Draft EIS. The original 60-day comment period for the Draft EIS was scheduled to end on April 26, 2008 but was extended to June 13, 2008. Comments received during this period expressed a concern about the section addressing water quality analysis. In order to address these comments, an additional water quality analysis is being prepared for the Draft EIS. This analysis will augment and reinforce the existing analysis for the Draft EIS. Reclamation will continue to receive comments on the existing water quality portion of the Draft EIS while the additional analysis is performed.
Comments on the existing water quality analysis featured in the DEIS will be received until provided by future notice. When completed the additional analysis will be made available for public review and comment during a 45-day period. The availability of the additional analysis and the corresponding 45-day comment period will be announced in the Federal Register on a future date in 2008.
