Hard copies of the DEIS are supposed to be available in public libraries in impacted counties. We have verified that the DEIS is available in the Central City library near the OVEC office, as well as the main Cabell County library in downtown Huntington, and the Putnam County library. We should have received a copy at the OVEC office, but so far have not.
