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

Weekly Receipt of Environmental Impact Statements Filed 06/20/2011 Through 6/24/2011 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 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 included 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, on March 31, 2010, EPA discontinued the publication of the notice of availability of EPA comments in the Federal Register.
