ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The Corps published a Public Notice on September 15, 2014, to inform interested parties of the proposed RGP for Emergency Actions, and to solicit comments from public, Federal, state, and local agencies and officials, Indian tribes, and other interested parties in order to consider, and evaluate the impacts of the RGP. All comments received were reviewed and considered by the Corps to determine whether to issue, modify, or condition the RGP. To make this decision, the comments were used to assess impacts on endangered species, historic properties, water quality, general environmental effects, and other public interest factors. The comments were used in the preparation of an Environmental Assessment pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act, and to determine the need for a public hearing, and overall public interest of the proposed RGP. All comment letters received are subject to release to the public through the Freedom of Information Act.
