DOE will review the Alliance’s selection process for fairness, openness and compliance with the established approach. Based on its review of the Alliance’s identification of candidate sites and other relevant information, DOE will then preliminarily determine the reasonable alternatives to be addressed in the EIS. DOE’s NOI to prepare an EIS for the FutureGen Project will identify the proposed reasonable alternative sites. The Alliance may assist the DOE and DOE contractors in gathering additional information to support completion of the EIS. However, the DOE and DOE contractors will develop the EIS. Following the completion of the EIS and the public involvement process, the DOE will announce in a Record of Decision (ROD) either the no-action alternative or those sites, if any, that are acceptable to the DOE for the project. If the action alternative is selected, the Alliance will subsequently select a host site from among those, if any, that are listed in the ROD as being acceptable to the DOE. Following the tentative selection of a host site, the Alliance will conduct extensive site characterization work on the chosen site. Information obtained from the characterization will be reviewed by the DOE and will support the completion of a supplement analysis by DOE to determine whether the newly gained information would have altered in a significant way the findings in the EIS. The supplement analysis will be used to determine whether a Supplemental EIS must be prepared. dsatterwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Future Public Involvement This ANOI does not serve as a substitute for the Notice of Intent that will initiate the public scoping process for the FutureGen Project EIS. Following publication of the Notice of Intent, DOE will hold scoping meetings, prepare and distribute the Draft EIS for public review, hold public hearings to solicit public comment on the Draft EIS, and publish a Final EIS. Not less than 30 days after publication of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Notice of Availability of the Final EIS, DOE may issue a Record of Decision documenting its decision concerning the proposed action. Preliminary EIS Schedule DOE anticipates issuance of a NOI to prepare an EIS in July 2006. The NOI or subsequent notices published in the Federal Register will announce the dates for public scoping meetings and the target date for completion of a Draft EIS. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:56 Feb 15, 2006 Jkt 208001 A Notice of Availability of the Draft EIS will be published in the Federal Register upon completion of the Draft EIS and will announce the locations and dates for public hearings on the Draft EIS and the means for providing comments. DOE will hold public hearings at locations comparable to those for the scoping meetings. DOE will consider all comments received at public hearings or otherwise during preparation of the Final EIS.
