General Information Regarding Use of Optional DNS Process
When the SEPA field indicates a Determination of Nonsignificance (DNS) is expected, the optional DNS process is being used and a DNS is likely. This may be the only opportunity to comment on the environmental impacts of the proposal. The proposal may include mitigation measures under applicable codes and the project review process may incorporate or require mitigation measures regardless of whether an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is prepared. A copy of the subsequent Threshold Determination for the proposal may be obtained upon request. The Threshold Determination will also be noticed in a subsequent issue of this Weekly Permit Bulletin.
