Today is the due date for final comments on the bathymetric survey. I’ve just submitted mine. Not a lot to say about this. As I state in my letter, I stand by my original comments but agree with the Department decision that putting more time and energy into this is not warranted at this time. There are bigger fish to fry.
I have no idea whether Paul Kelley intends to submit additional comments about the survey or not. I wouldn’t be surprised as he can’t really afford to pass up any opportunity to lob another wrench into the works, not that it will do him any good at this point. Kelley’s thrusts at the Department’s midsection are easily deflected it appears. We’ll know by the end of the day if he’s going to take another useless and futile jab at them over this issue.
Next Up: Tomorrow I’ll be submitting Petitioner’s comments on the Clary Lake Assessment (minimum flows recommendation) or perhaps this afternoon if I can finish them up. I assume we’ll hear from DEP soon denying Kelley’s request for an extension to file comments. It would be appropriate I think for them to put off responding to him until about 4:55 pm tomorrow afternoon, leaving him with 5 minutes to submit something. That’s what I would do 🙂
Is everyone happy with me posting documents to Google Drive? It’s a whole lot more convenient for me, my only concern is whether people are having trouble viewing and/or downloading them from time to time. If you are, please let me know.
