Thanks for the reply. To confirm, there was no communication accompanying this document? Did Mr. DeVito send only this document to FWS with no explanation or comment? When did he send it? How? It seems very unlikely there was no other communications on this issue.

From: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Region 5

Mr. Coleman - here is the Berwind Mine concurrence letter you requested.
Also, I left you a voicemail message regarding the status of the guidance
document. Feel free to call if you have any more questions.
