Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Kentucky follows the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) when reviewing environmental impact statements (EIS). The state does not have its own specific statutes or regulations for EIS review.

Although Kentucky does not specifically require an EIS, the state's permit application process includes consideration of the potential environmental impact of any proposed regulated activity. Any required federal permits or licenses are subject to EIS review. In addition, any project receiving full or partial federal funding is subject to EIS review.

For more information, see the national section ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT.

Administration and enforcement. Each DEP division administers and enforces the EIS requirements of its specific permit program.
