Public Comment Periods
August 18 – September 19, 2011
The U.S. Department of Energy would like input on an Environmental Assessment (EA) for Integrated Vegetation Management on the Hanford Site. The EA analyzes a proposed action to manage invasive plants and noxious weeds on the Hanford Site using an integrated approach through a combination of prescribed burning, physical, chemical and biological methods, and re-vegetation methodologies with native plant species across large areas of the Hanford Site.
A 30-day public comment period will run August 18 through September 19. DOE will consider all comments before issuing the final EA and Determination. Comments should be submitted by September 19, 2011 to: Steve Stites, NEPA Document Manager, U.S. Department of Energy, P.O. Box 550, A6-35, Richland, WA 99352, Email: IVMEA@rl.gov
