proposed action, specifically within the
context of additional information made
available since completion of final EIS
for this project. This additional
information addresses estimates of total
quantity of sediment impounded by
Ballville Dam, the potential impacts of
the proposed alternative on harmful
algal blooms (HABs) in the Sandusky
River and Lake Erie due to the proposed
sediment release, the potential impacts
of the proposed alternative on
downstream habitats due to sediment
release, the accuracy of cost estimates of
sediment removal within the EIS,
evaluation of a bypass and excavation
alternative provided in comments on
the FEIS, and the potential for beneficial
reuse of sediments impounded by
Ballville Dam. Although we concluded
that these topics were sufficiently
addressed in the FEIS, we provide
additional review and assessment in
this Draft SEIS to help further clarify the
issues. To complete this aspect of the
Draft SEIS, we consulted subject matter
experts to help review FEIS materials
and clearly articulate our understanding
of them. The resulting additional
information and explanation has been
incorporated within this Draft SEIS.
EPA’s Role in the EIS Process
In addition to this notice of the draft
SEIS, EPA is publishing a Federal
Register notice announcing the draft
SEIS, as required under section 309 of
the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7401 et
seq.; CAA). The publication of EPA’s
notice is the official start of the
minimum requirement for a 45-day
public comment period for an EIS. The
EPA is charged under the CAA to
review all Federal agencies’ EISs and to
comment on the adequacy and the
acceptability of the environmental
impacts of proposed actions in the EISs.
EPA also serves as the repository (EIS
database) for EISs prepared by Federal
agencies. The EIS database provides
information about EISs prepared by
Federal agencies, as well as EPA’s
comments concerning the EISs. All EISs
are filed with EPA, which publishes a
notice of availability on Fridays in the
Federal Register. For more information,
see http://www.epa.gov/compliance/
nepa/eisdata.html. You may search for
EPA comments on EISs, along with EISs
themselves, at https://
cdxnodengn.epa.gov/cdx-enepa-public/
action/eis/search.
Public Comments
Letters describing the proposed action
and soliciting comments will be sent to
appropriate Federal, State, and local
agencies, and to private organizations
and citizens who have previously
