Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Utah does not have a statute similar to NEPA that requires state agencies to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) for actions that may cause environmental harm. However, the state's permit application process generally includes consideration of the potential environmental impact of any proposed regulated activity. See the national section ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT for additional information.

Administration and enforcement. Each DEQ division administers and enforces the impact statement requirements of its specific permit program.
