HOW TO MAKE YOUR COMMENTS COUNT:
- Be clear, concise and relevant.
- Things to comment on: the proposed alternatives, the assessment of the environmental impacts, proposed mitigation measures, and issues of concern.
- Provide solution-oriented comments and specific examples and supporting rationale that would aid in reaching a decision.
- Include facts (e.g. comparative impacts, issues of most concern, information on the resource tradeoffs, information on the relative values attached to the resources).
- Reference the name of the Draft EIS and include your name, address, telephone number and organization represented (if applicable).
- NEPA isn’t a voting exercise — don’t simply provide an expression of preference for one alternative versus another.
