§ 3.27. Departmental response to significant comments.
(a) After the close of the public comment period, the Department will consider all significant comments, criticisms and new data received during that period, including those made at the public hearing, and will respond in a response document. The response document will be incorporated into the administrative record after the close of the public comment period.
(b) The Department will use the following criteria for preparation of responses to significant comments, criticisms and new data received during the comment period:
(1) Comments, criticisms and new data will be considered significant if they provide a reasonable basis for concluding that the determinations of the Department might be altered.
(2) The Department may group comments, criticisms or new data if similar and may respond to the groupings in a single statement.
(3) If significant comments, criticisms or new data are already addressed in the administrative record, the Departments response may simply reference the appropriate part of the record.
