Module 4: NonProject SEPA, Phased Review, Adopting Existing Documents

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.

This is the session with important yet often confusing or ambiguous aspects of the SEPA reviews being held on April 22nd, 2021.  We’ll provide more time for Q & A but also go into more depth on how to analyze indirect impacts for a programmatic or “nonproject” SEPA review.  This also leads into some procedural steps related to phased review and how to adopt previously prepared SEPA and NEPA documents.

(2.5 AICP credits/CEP Points)

Additionally, we will host a separate tech check session where you can check your audio and visual connection and practice using the Zoom features that we will use during the module. This session is optional, however block your calendar for 8 - 8:30 AM or 3-3:30 PM on April 19th, 2021 if you plan to attend one of these tech sessions. 

Here is the recording of the training from April 22nd, 2021.

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