Weekly receipt of Environmental Impact Statements
Filed 07/30/2012 Through 08/03/2012
Pursuant to 40 CFR 1506.9.


    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.


    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
