Center for Biological Diversity Action Alert Letters

Our office received over 20,000 submissions from a Center for Biological Diversity Action Alert.  An Action Alert typically provides a standard letter to group members that can be signed and submitted as written, or editted prior to submission to include an individual's unique comment(s).  For the SNWA Groundwater Development Project EIS, our office received some standard letters as well as some unique letters. 

The table below provides links to the unique letters (some portion of the letter contains language different from the standard letter).  These are grouped in batches by last name.  When you click on a link you will see the first page or two lists the names of people who submitted letters in that batch, followed by their individual letters in alphabetical order.

Transcripts from Public Meetings

A court reporter was present at all public and tribal meetings to take down comments verbatim. Attendees were invited to speak to the court reporter privately during the open house portion of the meeting and after the meeting, or to speak during publically during the hearings portion of the public meetings.  All verbal comments from the meetings, as well as all written comments submitted to BLM, are considered official public comments as long as they are not anonymous.  Below are links to the transcripts from the public meetings.
