Module 1: Overview and Applicability

The online State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) training series will be presented by Fran Sant of the Washington State Department of Ecology. The four-session series is designed to provide participants with a general overview of the purpose of SEPA, the procedural requirements of the rules, and how SEPA can be used in decision-making. You can sign up for all four or just the modules that pertain to your work.

In this introductory session being held on April 13th, 2021, we will cover the statutory overview and purpose of the Act as well as when it is required for agency decision-making.  It will cover agency roles and responsibilities – including the designation of the SEPA lead agency.  This session also addresses SEPA exemptions and a discussion of when there are exceptions to those exemptions. (2.5 AICP credits/CEP Points)

Here is a recording of the training from April 13, 2021.

She has been providing SEPA technical assistance and working on SEPA rulemaking since joining Ecology in 2012.
