   (a) The DEIS shall include:

   (1) A concise description of the proposal, the nature of the area
   affected, its uses, and any specific feature of the area that has
   special environmental significance;

   (2) An analysis of the proposal, and reasonable alternatives exploring
   the important consequent advantages and/or disadvantages of the action
   and indicating the direct and indirect effects and their significance
   in terms of the short and long-term uses of the human environment.

   (b) When a DEIS and supplements, if any, are prepared, the Commission
   shall send five copies of the Statement, or a summary, to the Office of
   Federal Activities, Environmental Protection Agency. Additional copies,
   or summaries, will be sent to the appropriate regional office of the
   Environmental Protection Agency. Public Notice of the availability of
   the DEIS will be published in the Federal Register by the Environmental
   Protection Agency.

   (c) When copies or summaries of the DEIS are sent to the Environmental
   Protection Agency, the copies or summaries will be mailed with a
   request for comment to Federal agencies having jurisdiction by law or
   special expertise, to the Council on Environmental Quality, to the
   applicant, to individuals, groups and state and local agencies known to
   have an interest in the environmental consequences of a grant, and to
   any other person who has requested a copy.

   (d) Any person or agency may comment on the DEIS and the environmental
   effect of the proposal described therein within 45 days after notice of
   the availability of the statement is published in the Federal Register.
   A copy of those comments shall be mailed to the applicant by the person
   who files them pursuant to 47 CFR 1.47. An original and one copy shall
   be filed with the Commission. If a person submitting comments is
   especially qualified in any way to comment on the environmental impact
   of the facilities, a statement of his or her qualifications shall be
   set out in the comments. In addition, comments submitted by an agency
   shall identify the person(s) who prepared them.

   (e) The applicant may file reply comments within 15 days after the time
   for filing comments has expired. Reply comments shall be filed with the
   Commission in the same manner as comments, and shall be served by the
   applicant on persons or agencies which filed comments.

   (f) The preparation of a DEIS and the request for comments shall not
   open the application to attack on other grounds.
