Notice

    Section 309(a) of the Clean Air Act requires that EPA make public 
its comments on EISs issued by other Federal agencies. EPA's comment 
letters on EISs are available at: http://www.epa.gov/compliance/nepa/eisdata.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Starting October 1, 2012, EPA will not 
accept paper copies or CDs of EISs for filing purposes; all submissions 
on or after October 1, 2012 must be made through e-NEPA. While this 
system eliminates the need to submit paper or CD copies to EPA to meet 
filing requirements, electronic submission does not change requirements 
for distribution of EISs for public review and comment. To begin using 
e-NEPA, you must first register with EPA's electronic reporting site--
https://cdx.epa.gov/epa_home.asp.
