Assessments in Progress
The proponent of each individual proposal is required to prepare the case for assessment in accordance with guidelines issued by the Board of the EPA. For proposals where it is deemed appropriate, public comment is invited on the draft guidelines. Once the case for assessment is submitted to the EPA , in the form of an Environmental Impact Statement or Environmental Effects Report, public comment is invited for a period of time defined by law. If the Board required the proponent to prepare a Supplement to address issues raised during the public comment period it will be available along with the Board's decision. The Board of the EPA (the Board) is required to publicly disclose all information relating to the environmental impact of a proposal.
