Scoping meetings are designed to help FERC determine the scope of its environmental analysis. Members of the public, and especially municipal officials in affected towns, should be making suggestions for the scope of the study and requesting specific types of impacts to be investigated by the firm hired by FERC to conduct the study. There is no need to have the answers or provide specific details to FERC as they will be doing that investigation for themselves. All commenters are encouraged to submit their comments in writing, whether or not you participate in a meeting. The official deadline for submitting written scoping comments on the NED project is August 31, 2015.
