Public Meetings for Comment

The NRC and the USACE staff will hold two identical public meetings to present a brief overview of the DEIS and to accept public comments on the document. The meetings will be held at Noah's Event Venue, 1200 Ladd Landing Blvd., Kingston, Tennessee, on June 5, 2018. The first meeting will convene at 2:00 p.m. and will continue until approximately 4:00 p.m. The second meeting will convene at 7:00 p.m., with a repetition of the overview portions of the first meeting, and will continue until approximately 9:00 p.m. The meetings will be transcribed and will include the following:
(1) A brief presentation of the contents of the DEIS; and
(2) the opportunity for interested government agencies,
organizations, and individuals to submit comments on the draft report.
Additionally, the NRC staff will host informal discussions for 1
hour prior to the start of each public meeting. No formal comments will be accepted during the informal discussions. To be considered, comments must be provided either at a transcribed public meeting or in writing, as discussed below.
Persons may register to attend or present oral comments at the
meeting on the DEIS by contacting Ms. Patricia Vokoun by telephone at 1-800-368-5642, extension 3470, or by email to the NRC at no later than May 30, 2018. Members of the
public may also register to speak at the meeting prior to the start of the presentation. Individual oral comments may be limited by the time available, depending on the number of persons who register. Members of the public who have not registered may also have an opportunity to speak, if time permits. Public comments will be considered in the preparation of the final EIS. If special equipment or accommodations are needed to attend or present information at the public meeting, the need should be brought to Ms. Vokoun's attention no later than May 29, 2018, so that the NRC staff can determine whether the request can be accommodated.
After receipt and consideration of comments on the DEIS, the NRC
will prepare and issue the final EIS, which will also be available to the public.

Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 20th day of April 2018.
