Frequent Questions

How will an EPA regional office determine whether a permitted activity may have significant public health or environmental impacts?

Permit applications provide information on the proposed project consistent with the requirements of particular statutes and regulations. EPA may also do its own assessment of the environmental and public health impacts of a proposed project, using modeling and monitoring data for example. Such information would inform an EPA regional office’s decision on whether a permitted activity has significant environmental or public health impacts.
