About this Collection
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) announces the opening of a public comment period on the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Designation of Critical Habitat for the Louisiana pigtoe. In accordance with Service guidelines and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements, public involvement is an important factor in the development and review of a proposed action. A 30-day public comment period will allow the public the opportunity to review and comment on the EA, which includes a description of the Proposed Action and anticipated impacts. We will consider comments on the EA received on or before September 27, 2023. GIS data files showing proposed critical habitat for the Louisiana pigtoe and Texas heelsplitter are also available in this collection. Comments must be submitted by emailing them to email@example.com with the subject line: “PUBLIC COMMENT.” If you would like additional information or have questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
