Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is a document that, under the National Environmental Policy Act, must be completed by all federal agencies before commencing any major project that could significantly impact the environment. MEPA does not require an EIS for projects involving state agencies or funding. However, information similar to that contained in an EIS may be requested for a project during the permitting process for public water supply projects, for projects in critical dune areas, and for sand dune mining. See the national section ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT, or contact DNRE's Environmental Assistance Center for more information.

Administration and enforcement. All state EISs should be submitted to DNRE's Environmental Assistance Center. DNRE reviews and distributes the EISs to other interested agencies.
