No agency filings affecting this section since 2003

Purpose of this part.

This part provides rules for:
(1) Administering categorical exemptions for proposals that would not have probable significant adverse impacts;
(2) Deciding whether a proposal has a probable significant adverse impact and thus requires an EIS (the threshold determination);
(3) Providing a way to review and mitigate nonexempt proposals through the threshold determination;
(4) Integrating the environmental analysis required by SEPA into early planning to ensure appropriate consideration of SEPA's policies and to eliminate duplication and delay; and
(5) Integrating the environmental analysis required by SEPA into the project review process.
