DEIS Deadline Extension Sample Letters

DEIS Extension Request Sample #1:

As you know, there is a significant amount of information in the Draft EIS published by FERC on May 5, 2016.  It takes a lot of time to process and respond to these volumes of information.

I am asking that FERC extend the comment period for we-the-people who would be most adversely affected by the proposed line, so we have due time to address our concerns with the contents of the document.

If permitted, the pipeline is something we will have to live with the rest of our lives- as will our children, and our children's children.  Please consider giving us extra time to process all of the possible impacts on the land around us- land we will continue to maintain and be required to pay taxes on.

It seems a trifle request, and certainly reasonable, for more time to get through the hundreds of pages which you have taken months to create.

Thank you for your consideration.

 

DEIS Extension Request Sample #2:

The 472-pages in the Draft EIS of FERC Docket CP15-138, along with its appendices took many months for FERC staff to create.  The documents are also not all-encompassing in that they refer to other documents submitted under CP15-138.  

Because this enormous amount of paperwork will take a comparable amount of time to review, I ask that you extend the deadline for comment to something more reasonable.  This request is being made in an honest effort to fully understand the impacts of this project on our livelihoods and our families.

Thank you for your consideration.

 

DEIS Extension Request Sample #3:

I am writing to ask that you extend the public comment period for the DEIS of the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline. (FERC Docket: CP 15-138).  I and many in the community have jobs and full lives, and in order for us to pore over all layers of the document, and have time to respond adequately (without sacrificing our jobs and livelihoods), we will need
more than the allotted time between now and June 27, 2016.

The Atlantic Sunrise Proposal is a project that would greatly affect anyone living along or near the proposed path, as well as everyone who would have potable water and healthy air.  It is a meager request to have an extended period of time to address the multiple impacts we will have to live with the rest of our lives and for generations to come.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

 

DEIS Extension Request Sample #4: 

Please consider this request to extend the public comment period for the DEIS of the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline. (FERC Docket: CP 15-138).  These documents took the full attention of dozens of FERC and Williams employees and contractors literally thousands of hours and months to prepare.  We, the public, are expected to comment on such a complicated set of documents in a short period of time in comparison.  

The Atlantic Sunrise Proposal is a project that would greatly contribute to runaway climate change, and will have negative impacts for folks living in the shalefields, along the route of the pipeline, and near the destinations of its fracked gas, including Cove Point and other export facilities.  It is a small request to have an extended period of time to address the multiple impacts we will have to live with the rest of our lives and for generations to come.

Thank you for your consideration.
