DOE to Provide Enhanced Public Notice for Environmental Assessments

July 16, 2010 - 3:53pm


To improve transparency and public participation in the NEPA process, the Department of Energy has decided to provide online publication and immediate electronic notification of all draft Environmental Assessments (EAs) that are being made available for public comment.  When the Department makes a draft EA available for public review, it will publish the draft EA online and provide immediate electronic notice to members of the public who have signed up to receive such notice.

Anyone interested in such notice can sign up for such notice here. Department policy also encourages Offices to make draft EAs available for public comment whenever possible.
