ANS Control Screening Comment Period Closed

USACE has closed the comment period for the screened ANS Controls identified in the Inventory of Available Controls for Aquatic Nuisance Species of Concern – Chicago Area Waterway System (ANS Control Paper). The public comment period opened January 18 and closed February 21, 2013.

USACE requested information on ANS Controls that may be effective at preventing the transfer through the CAWS of fish, algae, crustaceans and plants in all life stages but are missing from the lists, or comments regarding ANS Controls identified.

Comments were received through an online comment form. USACE considered the submitted information as it refined the list of ANS Controls available for alternative development.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to review the posted information and to comment. The GLMRIS Team appreciates your input.
