FOREST SERVICE EXTENDING COMMENT PERIOD FOR EIS DRAFT
The U.S. Forest Service is extending the comment period for the much anticipated draft Environmental Impact Statement and draft forest plans for the Inyo, Sequoia, and Sierra National Forests to this evening. Due to national computer server issues, the project website was intermittently unavailable on the original deadline, Thursday, August 25th. This system-wide error caused agency-wide issues that were not unique to this project. They would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
They encourage comments to be as specific as possible and focus on the merits of the alternatives and/or the adequacy of the analysis. the more specific the comments are, the better they can respond to them and improve the final EIS. For more information please call 707-562-9121.
