From: Floyd-Coleman, Cynthia

Mr. Morisy you sent a request to the EPA regarding correspondence between the Capitol Power Plant. Is there any particular area in the EPA that you are requesting correspondence from? For instance is this an Air issues, Water issue, Pesticide issue? I need more specifics so the request can be assigned to the appropriate office. I'm thinking the Office of Air and Radiation because of the company being named "Capitol Power Plant". Please let me know what other information you can provide so your request will be processed properly.

Thank you

Thanks again for your help on the phone in clarifying and narrowing this request.

For permitting related materials, I would like narrow this request to external communications between your EPA office and the Architect of the Capitol's office.

You also mentioned that you would be able to send a link to a database of enforcement actions, and possibly action ID numbers to search this database.

Thanks again for your assistance, and have a great weekend.

Michael

I am writing to ascertain whether your organization is still interested in receiving documents in response to your FOIA request of August 12, 2013 (EPA FOIA number EPA-R3-2013-009030) seeking correspondence generated or received after January 1, 2012 concerning the Capitol Power Plant.

However, if you are no longer interested in a response to this specific FOIA, we would like to remove it from our FOIA tracking system. Please know that the withdrawal of this specific FOIA would not prevent your organization from re-filing the same or similar FOIA request should you again become interested in this matter.

Please respond within 5 business days to this e-mail. If I do not hear from you by then, we will assume that your organization is no longer interested in pursuing this particular FOIA request and will remove it from our FOIA tracking system.
