I always thought that the challenge of posting 45 days of comments was, well challenging. That is why I confined myself to just ten comments. Anyway here it is.
Let’s try this again–this time with the directions on which button to click and what section to put in the dropdown box.
As long as we’re sending out another e-mail today, would any of you be able to participate in a Comment Drop on Thursday, January 2 at IDNR? We don’t have a specific time yet but we’re looking for at least a dozen leaders who would come out with us that day to deliver the over 10,000 comments that have been generated. Please respond to this e-mail if you’re interested in participating.
Day 39 12/23/13
Topic: What should be required on an application when modifications are made.
- Go to: http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/OilandGas/Pages/OnlineCommentSubmittalForm.aspx
- Click the button: Subpart C: Permit Decisions
- In the “Section” dropdown box, click: 245.330 Permit Modifications
- Submit your comment/s (below)
- Click “Submit”
Subsection 245.330(b)(1) states, “Sections of a permit modification application that are not the subject of a proposed deviation from an original permit are not required to be completed.”
It is entirely possible that a potential significant impact of a modification would not be the “subject of” the modification but rather a consequence of it and those portions of a permit modification should be required to be completed.
Revisions Needed: This language in this section should be modified to state that sections “that are not impacted by” the proposed modifications need not be completed.
