Environmental Review for Aquatic State-owned Lands 
 

Environmental Review

DNR is steward of about 2.6 million acres of aquatic lands statewide. It is important that the agency track the permitting and environmental review processes for projects that could potentially occur on, or impact state-owned aquatic lands. Aquatics staff work closely with DNR's State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Center.
 
SEPA Center is to coordinate the review of these projects. The SEPA Center receives vast numbers of notices for permit applications and environmental review from local, federal, and other state agencies for projects that may affect state-owned aquatic lands. This information is then forwarded to the appropriate staff to help ensure that DNR provides input early in the planning stage for projects that may impact land managed by the agency.

Proponents of projects that may require DNR authorization for the use of state-owned aquatic lands can help ensure that their project is reviewed in a timely manner by contacting the Aquatics District Office for the area in which the project is proposed and by forwarding information related to environmental review and permitting for the project to the DNR SEPA Center.
