LTEMP EIS Schedule

The LTEMP EIS and ROD were completed in 2016.

Preparation of the LTEMP EIS was a multistep process, and included the following steps:

  • Public scoping meetings
  • Consultation and involvement with appropriate federal, state, and local agencies, and Tribal governments
  • Publication of a DEIS
  • Public review and meeting(s) on the published DEIS
  • Publication of a Final EIS (FEIS)
  • Publication of the Record of Decision (ROD)

The DEIS was filed with the U.S Environmental Protection Agency on January 8, 2016, and made available for download on the same day. The 122-day public comment period on the DEIS ended May 9, 2016. Meetings on the published DEIS were conducted in February and March 2016. The FEIS was filed with the U.S Environmental Protection Agency on October 7, 2016, and made available for download on the same day. Following publication, a 30-day waiting period was provided, followed by signing of the ROD on December 15, 2016.
