Recent Certificates of the Secretary of Energy & Environmental Affairs

After the close of the public comment period and on or before the last day of the review period for an Environmental Notification Form (ENF), Environmental Impact Report (EIR) or Notice of Project Change (NPC), the Secretary of Energy & Environmental Affairs issues a written certificate.

For ENFs, the certificate states whether or not an Environmental Impact Report is required and, if so, what is required in the scope. For EIRs, the certificate states whether or not the EIR adequately and properly complies with MEPA and the MEPA regulations. NPC certificates state whether additional MEPA review is warranted.

The following are the most recent Certificates issued by the Secretary of Energy & Environmental Affairs. Click on the name of the project to be linked to a scanned copy of the Certificate. After appearing on this page, these Certificates may be found in the current issue of the Environmental Monitor covering the period during which they were issued. Afterwards, they may be found in the on-line MEPA archives.
