The United States Air Force published a Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS in the Federal Register (Vol. 74, No. 247, page 68597) on Dec 28, 2009. Due to severe weather in New Mexico, some of the scoping meetings were cancelled. In the Air Force's effort to make every attempt to allow the public an opportunity for providing their input, we have re-scheduled the scoping meetings to be held in Ruidoso and Ft. Sumner, NM. Furthermore, due to public interest and comments, The Air Force has decided to add three additional scoping meetings in New Mexico and Arizona for the Holloman AFB and Tucson International Airport Air Guard Station alternatives. This revised Notice of Intent is prepared to notify the public of the rescheduling and additional scoping meetings to be held in New Mexico and Arizona. Also, due to these additional scoping meetings the public comment period is extended to May 17, 2010.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Chicago District is requesting public comments for a planned Environmental Assessment. The Corps is directed to conduct a study of technologies that may enhance the efficacy of the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal Dispersal Barriers System. The study is structured as a series of interim reports. Interim Report IIIa, limited to the impacts of implementing additional in- stream barrier/deterrent technologies at key locations in the Illinois and Chicago Area Waterways is the focus of this planned EA. The specific technologies under consideration include acoustic deterrents, air bubble curtains, and strobe lights used both individually and in combination. Comments are requested to assist in determining the level of analysis and impacts to be considered for implementing these in- stream barrier/deterrent technologies. Any comments received by the Corps on the proposed EA will be considered fully for the Federal action associated with the Project.
