SEPA Policies and Procedure

CASCADE CODE 6.05

The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review identifies possible environmental impacts of a proposed activity. Cascade Water Alliance may be the lead agency for SEPA review for its projects.

SEPA Determinations

For projects that are not exempt from SEPA, Cascade completes a SEPA Checklist and then determines if the project is likely to cause significant environmental impacts. If the project is likely to cause an environmental impact that cannot be mitigated as part of the proposal, Cascade issues a determination of significance (DS) and performs an analysis called an environmental impact statement (EIS). The EIS evaluates ways to eliminate or reduce the impacts of a project. If the project is unlikely to an adversely impact or such impacts can be mitigated as part of the proposal, Cascade will issue a determination of non-significance (DNS) or a mitigated DNS (MDNS). Below is a listing of recent determinations:
