Interim Report Available for Review and Comment

You are invited to review and provide comments on the Buffalo Bayou and Tributaries Resiliency Study. This review and comment period opened on October 2, 2020 with the publication of the Notice of Availability in the Federal Register.

Your input will help inform decision-makers as they weigh the benefits and costs of alternatives or the individual measures that comprise an alternative. Public comments on the interim report also will help identify any additional impacts not yet considered and help aid in the identification of a Tentatively Selected Plan.

What is a written comment?

Written commenting is a process that allows individuals, organizations, agencies, and businesses to provide input on the study. It is important to note that commenting is not “voting” on whether a particular action should take place. However, the information you provide can influence the study team’s work and the decision-makers.

Why submit a written comment?

Written commenting is an important way to make your voice heard. Public comments can strengthen a decision by providing facts or perspectives that could be lacking in the original document. The goal of commenting is to help create an accurate and comprehensive document to support appropriate and informed decision-making.

We may accept oral comments during future public comment periods.
