EPA Watershed Assessment – Deadline: June 30, 2013.
EPA released the revised version of its Bristol Bay watershed assessment in late April. Though a second public comment period wasn't originally planned, EPA opened one up in response to public interest. Just before the stated deadline of May 31, 2013, EPA also decided to extend this second commenting period another thirty days. The revised assessment has been both praised and criticized by different interest groups, and has garnered more than 330,000 comments to date.
