To help you prepare for what needs to be done next, Stop the Pipeline (STP) will devote its 1/28 meeting to the Draft EIS, and how you should respond to it.
We hope everyone will submit comments to FERC, and encourage others to do the same. It's especially important for landowners to submit comments, even if they've signed an easement agreement.
To get an overview of the next phase, come to STP's next meeting. We will make more specific information available after the DEIS is released.
