The NOI was sent to affected landowners; federal, state, and local governmental representatives and agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; potentially interested Indian tribes; and local libraries and newspapers. In response to the NOI, we received a total of 15 comments letters. The comments addressed support for the project, purpose and need, water resources and wetlands, geology, vegetation, wildlife, fisheries, threatened and endangered species, land use and recreation, air quality/ greenhouse gas emissions, alternative analysis, tribal cultural resources and the National Historic Preservation Act, and cumulative impacts. All substantive comments will be addressed in the EA. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a federal cooperating agency who is assisting us in preparing this EA because they have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to environmental impacts associated with Dominion’s proposal. Additional Information In order to receive notification of the issuance of the EA and to keep track of all formal issuances and submittals in specific dockets, the Commission offers a free service called eSubscription.
