8. Public Input Opportunities
Formal procedures are established for public participation in the limited storage facility operating license process. The public is notified about the project before the application is submitted to the MDEQ. Through newspaper and radio advertising, the applicant notifies the public of the pending application, and the applicant also conducts a pre-application informational meeting. Once the application is received by the MDEQ, a mailing list is developed to keep interested persons informed of significant actions during the permitting process. The MDEQ also uses newspaper and radio advertising and the Internet to keep the public informed and to announce public input opportunities. While public input is sought throughout the review process, a formal public participation process is initiated for the draft license or denial: the MDEQ conducts a public hearing and accepts written comments for at least 45 days. The final decision maker in this process is the Chief of the OWMRP.
