GLMRIS: Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study
January 14, 2011

Nine Scoping Meetings Confirmed With Additional Meetings Planned for Milwaukee and New Orleans

After the commencement of the first scoping meeting in Chicago on Dec. 15, 2010, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has confirmed the venues, dates and times of nine other public scoping meetings. The meeting times have been revised to begin at 2 pm and end at 8 pm. See the example agenda.

Through the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) scoping process, USACE invites you to attend a meeting to help us refine the scope of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study (GLMRIS) to focus on the most significant issues. To make an oral comment at one of these meetings, please register.

Due to high public interest, USACE will also hold meetings in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and New Orleans, Louisiana. Details to follow.

Remember, until March 31, 2011, USACE will be accepting public comments on the scope of GLMRIS. Written comments may be submitted online.
