How Do I Get Involved in DNR's Decision for a Specific Proposal? 
 

Q. How do I get involved in DNR's decision for a specific proposal?

A. SEPA offers public involvement in DNR decisions by accepting and considering comments that were: 1) submitted during the SEPA review period, and 2) focus on environmental issues associated with the proposal.

  • A DNS or a MDNS typically has a 14-day comment period that allows for agencies with jurisdiction, tribes, and interested parties to provide their input.
  • When DNR issues an EIS, the public has several opportunities, often including hearings or public meetings, to provide input on the:
    • Scope. A scoping notice is sent out with a minimum 21-day comment period to gather input on the scope (range of alternatives, mitigation and impacts analyzed) of the environmental impact statement.
    • Draft EIS. This step includes another public comment period soliciting input about the completeness and accuracy of the information in the DEIS.
    • Final EIS, including public input, is issued.
