|Comments were received from
two organizations and one individual before the end of the comment
period.† Many of the comments received
were suitable for WVDEP response.† Some
comments were out of the scope of the Bureauís authority, such as the request
to eliminate coal preparation plants and coal-fired power plants.
|We added several issues to
the report in response to comments:
|The report points out that
plant-based sources of omega-3 available.†
They are: flaxseed, canola oil, and walnuts.† The type of omega-3 fatty acids found in
these foods are inefficiently metabolized to the essential omega-3 fatty
acids found in fish.
|Rates of deep-ocean mercury
removal are unknown because the global mercury cycle is not understood.
|The EPA estimates it may
take 5 to 30 years after mercury emissions are changed for a steady-state to
be reached in aquatic environments.
