Public 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. Public scoping is a phase of the NEPA process. Scoping is the earliest, but not the only, opportunity for people to provide input on the Pascagoula River Drought Resiliency 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.

Scoping Meeting

A public scoping meeting for the Pascagoula River Drought Resiliency Project EIS was held on January 24, 2017. The address and map for the Open House and Public Scoping meeting may be found here.

At this meeting, 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.
