Responsible Agency: Office of Federal Activities, General Information (202) 564-1399 or​compliance/​nepa/​.

Weekly Receipt of Environmental Impact Statements

Filed 02/01/2010 through 02/12/2010.

Pursuant to 40 CFR 1506.9.


In accordance with Section 309(a) of the Clean Air Act, EPA is required to make its comments on EISs issued by other Federal agencies public. Historically, EPA has met this mandate by publishing weekly notices of availability of EPA comments, which includes a brief summary of EPA's comment letters, in the Federal Register. Since February 2008, EPA has been including its comment letters on EISs on its Web site at:​compliance/​nepa/​eisdata.html. Including the entire EIS comment letters on the Web site satisfies the Section 309(a) requirement to make EPA's comments on EISs available to the public. Accordingly, after March 31, 2010, EPA will discontinue the publication of this notice of availability of EPA comments in the Federal Register.

Federal Offices in Washington, DC, were closed because of inclement weather from February 8-11, 2010. Accordingly the Notice of Availability for the Weekly Receipt of Environmental Impact Statements filed 02/01/2010 through 02/05/2010 was not published in the Federal Register on February 12, 2010.
