"Scoping" is the step in the NEPA process when the public is invited to participate in identifying issues, alternatives, and potentially significant effects to be considered in the analysis. This helps the Corps identify and eliminate from detailed study issues that are not significant or that have been covered by prior environmental review.
Members of the public and stakeholders are invited to learn more about the projects and provide input to both teams at the combined NEPA Public Scoping Meeting. The format of the meeting will be an open-house that will include informational poster boards and a presentation beginning at 4:30 p.m. The public can attend any time during the meeting hours (4 to 7 p.m.) and staff from both project teams will be available to answer questions and receive written comments from the public.
