Public Involvement Opportunities
OEA conducted 10 scoping meetings to provide the public with information on the proposed project, the environmental review process, and to solicit comments on the Draft Scope of Study. The scoping meetings were held in Lame Deer, Forsyth, Ashland, and Miles City, Montana on November 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th, 2012. The scoping comment period closed on January 11th, 2012.
OEA has reviewed public and agency input received during the scoping process and issued the Final Scope of Study on March 22, 2013. Public scoping meeting transcripts and scoping comments can be found on this website here as well as on the Board's website under environmental correspondence by clicking here.
