Note: The assessment was released on April 18, 2011, for external peer review and public comment. The peer review report was received September 11, 2011, and the assessment was revised. EPA decided a follow-up letter peer review was warranted, and released a revised assessment for public comment on May 7, 2013. The comment period closed on June 17, 2013, and the peer reviewers conducted a public teleconference to discuss their initial comments on June 26, 2013. Accordingly, the next steps are revision of the assessment as appropriate to respond to public and peer review comments and final agency review and interagency science discussion before posting.
