As a further comment, we note that no mention is made in the Federal Register Notice of a hearing on the DEIS. The general rule of thumb is that such a hearing is held when there is sufficient public concern, a trigger more than met in this instance. OEI expects to have many voices join our call for a public hearing on this DEIS.
