    For a period of thirty (30) days following the date of publication 
of this notice, the Agency will accept written comments relating to the 
proposed consent decree from persons who are not named as parties or 
intervenors to the litigation in question. EPA or the Department of

II. Additional Information About Commenting on the Proposed Consent 
Decree

A. How can I get a copy of the consent decree?

    The official public docket for this action (identified by Docket ID 
No. EPA-HQ-OGC-2016-0336) contains a copy of the proposed consent 
decree. The official public docket is available for public viewing at 
the Office of Environmental Information (``OEI'') Docket in the EPA 
Docket Center, EPA West, Room 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW.,

holidays. The telephone number for the Public Reading Room is (202)

    An electronic version of the public docket is available through 
www.regulations.gov. You may use www.regulations.gov to submit or view 
public comments, access the index listing of the contents of the 
official public docket, and access those documents in the public docket 
that are available electronically. Once in the system, key in the 
appropriate docket identification number then select ``search.''
    It is important to note that EPA's policy is that public comments, 
whether submitted electronically or in paper, will be made available 
for public viewing online at www.regulations.gov without change, unless 
the comment contains copyrighted material, Confidential Business 
Information (``CBI''), or other information whose disclosure is 
restricted by statute. Information claimed as CBI and other information 
whose disclosure is restricted by statute is not included in the 
official public docket or in the electronic public docket. EPA's policy 
is that copyrighted material, including copyrighted material contained 
in a public comment, will not be placed in EPA's electronic public 
docket but will be available only in printed, paper form in the 
official public docket. Although not all docket materials may be 
available electronically, you may still access any of the publicly 
available docket materials through the EPA Docket Center.

B. How and to whom do I submit comments?

    You may submit comments as provided in the ADDRESSES section. 
Please ensure that your comments are submitted within the specified 
comment period. Comments received after the close of the comment period

    If you submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you 
include your name, mailing address, and an email address or other

    Use of the www.regulations.gov Web site 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 identity, email address, or other

www.regulations.gov, your email address is automatically captured and 
included as part of the comment that is placed in the official public 
docket, and made available in EPA's electronic public docket.
