If EPA cannot read your comment due to technical difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, EPA may not be able to consider your comment. Your use of EPA’s electronic public docket to submit comments to EPA electronically is EPA’s preferred method for receiving comments. The electronic public docket system is an ‘‘anonymous access’’ system, which means EPA will not know your identify, e-mail address, or other contact information unless you provide it in the body of your comment. In contrast to electronic public docket, EPA’s electronic mail (e-mail) system is not an ‘‘anonymous access’’ system. If you send an e-mail comment directly to the Docket without going through EPA’s electronic public docket, your e-mail address is automatically captured and included as part of the comment that is placed in the official docket, and made available in EPA’s electronic public docket.
