Public Scoping

Purpose of Scoping

The purpose of the public scoping process is to give the public a chance to comment on the proposed action, recommend alternatives, and identify and prioritize the resources and issues to be considered in the EIS analyses. Public scoping is a phase of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. Scoping is the earliest, but not the only, opportunity for people to provide input on the Glades Reservoir EIS.

The scoping process is intended to involve all interested agencies (federal, state, county, and local), tribal governments, public interest groups, businesses, and members of the public. The public scoping period started with the publication of the Notice of Intent in the Federal Register on February 17, 2012 and ended on April 17, 2012.

Scoping Meeting Displays & Handouts

Scoping Meetings

Public scoping meetings for the Glades Reservoir EIS were held in three cities in Georgia, Alabama, and Florida in March 2012. At these meetings, the public had the opportunity to learn about the proposed action, speak with technical experts and agency representatives, and provide feedback on concerns and possible issues associated with the proposed action. During this time, the Corps also met with Georgia, Alabama, and Florida state agencies to discuss the EIS. Please click on the links below to download the meeting summaries:
