The April 6 deadline for commenting on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) is less than a week away. Submitting comments for the DEIS is the most important action someone can take to influence the decision of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regarding the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Even if someone testified at one of the recent FERC comment sessions, they are urged to also file written comments, permitting them to provide more expansive views. To assist commenters, ABRA has prepared a guidance document: The Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline: What is it? What’s in it? What you can do!
Here’s how comments can submitted:
- File comments electronically (which is encouraged) using the eComment feature on the Commission’s website (www.ferc.gov) under the link to Documents and Filings. This is an easy method for submitting brief, text-only comments on a project.
- File comments electronically by using the eFiling feature on the Commission’s website (www.ferc.gov) under the link to Documents and Filings. With eFiling, one can provide comments in a variety of formats by attaching them as a file with your submission. New eFiling users must first create an account by clicking on “eRegister.”
- File a paper copy of comments by mailing them to the following address:
