We want to hear from you.

How to Comment on this Document (From DEIS PG 5)

We encourage you to submit comments on this Eddy Gulch Late-Successional Reserve Fuels / Habitat Protection Project Draft Environmental Impact Statement (draft EIS).

Will all comments be read? Yes, every comment will be read, but some comments are more useful than others. Here are some suggestions for making effective comments:

  • First, become familiar with this draft EIS.
  • Then, be as specific as possible with your comments. If, for example, you’re concerned about wildlife, please be more specific than a broad statement such as “this draft EIS did not adequately study wildlife.” For instance, perhaps there is a particular animal species that you think was not sufficiently analyzed. Focus your comments on that particular species and be as specific as possible in describing your concern. If you think effects on a certain species would be greater than what is described in the draft EIS, back up that statement with an explanation and facts. This applies to all resource areas covered in the draft EIS.
  • Another example of a comment that is too vague: “That alternative is not viable.” It’s ok to state an alternative is not viable, we just need to know why you think that way. Therefore, support your statement with some detail.
  • This draft EIS has chapter, section, page, and line numbers to assist you in developing your review comments. The simplest way to make a comment is to refer to the page number and line number on the page where your comment applies. For example, page 1-4, line 3. If the comment applies to more than one line on a page, indicate page 1-4, lines 3–5. If the comment applies across more than one page, write page 1-4, line 5 through page 1-5, line 10. If a comment applies to a table, please reference the table number (or figure number or map number, as the case may be).
  • Ensuring that your comments are properly considered begins with being able to relate them to the analysis in the draft EIS and to comments we receive from other readers regarding the same fact, assumption, or conclusion.

Finally, whether you’ve been participating in the project planning process since collaboration or scoping, or are just now becoming involved by reading the draft EIS, you are part of the review team for this document. Thank you for your participation.
