    SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Chicago District has posted on http://glmris.anl.gov the Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study (GLMRIS) Report.

Through a structured study process, USACE identified thirteen ANS of Concern established in one basin that posed a high or medium risk of adverse impacts by transfer and establishment in the opposite basin. USACE analyzed and evaluated available controls to address these ANS, and formulated alternatives specifically for the Chicago Area Waterway System (CAWS) with the goal of preventing ANS transfer between the two basins.

    USACE conducted GLMRIS in consultation with other federal agencies, Native American tribes, state agencies, local governments and non-governmental organizations. For additional information regarding GLMRIS, please refer to the project Web site http://glmris.anl.gov.

    This notice announces a comment period during which USACE is seeking public comment on the alternatives presented in the report.
