The form is used by regulated entities, consultants and the Department to evaluate the proposed environmental impact for a proposed project. The form has been revised and updated to provide more in depth discussion on the value of the resource, the potential effect the project will have on the resource, alternatives available and mitigation to offset the impacts.
Other changes include the addition of questions related to large scale projects located in more than one county in this Commonwealth and are covered by more than one single permit application will need to be addressed in the updated form.
