The EIS will consider alternatives that may result from comments received during the agency and public scoping period.

EIS Scoping Process The EIS process begins with the publication of this Notice of Intent. The scoping period will continue for 30 days after publication of this Notice of Intent and will close on September 15, 2006. During the scoping period the Corps invite Federal agencies, State and local governments, Native American Tribes, and the public to participate in the scoping process either by providing written comments or by attending the public scoping meetings scheduled for September 5, 6, 7, and 13, 2006 at the time and location indicated above. We have identified the following as probable major topics to be analyzed in depth in the Draft EIS: Oil spill impacts on aquatic resources, fish and wildlife habitat functions, threatened and endangered species impacts, surface water quality, and cumulative impacts. Both written and oral scoping comments will be considered in the preparation of the Draft EIS. Comments postmarked or received by e-mail after the specified date will be considered to the extent feasible. The purpose of the scoping meeting is to assist the Corps and U.S. Coast Guard in defining issues, public concerns, alternatives, and the depth to which they will be evaluated in the EIS. The public scoping meeting will begin with a briefing on the existing BP dock and the vessel traffic study. Copies of the meeting handouts will be available to anyone unable to attend by contacting the Corps Seattle District as described in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.
