Your own comments are usually better than a talking points form letter. I would suggest you express your concerns about impacts on the GC National Park, including but not limited to night sky, water, wildlife, traffic. You might question the need for such a project as well as better definitions of the scope of the project beyond the easements.
The cumulative effects should be considered. Irreparable and irreversible damage could be done with out a complete and thorough EIS. Insist on one.
Naturally, you will want to comment on the national and international significance of the Grand Canyon Canyon .
Your comments thoughts and frustrations will not be considered if you do not make them formally known.
For those in the area, try to attend one of the public scoping meetings. If you do attend and do comment at more than one meeting, do not repeat yourself, alter your presentation.
