DETERMINATION OF SIGNIFICANCE

Community Development issues a Determination of Significance (DS) which starts the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process. CCMC has requested that new scoping letters be allowed based on the Modified SEPA.

The EIS process would probably take 12 to 18 months.

The EIS process could reveal information that could stop the project.

Some of the Reasons Why an EIS Needed
  • ADAGE is an energy recovery facility. Currently slash is charged a tipping fee at many locations
  • NO consideration of impacts of slash removal on health of the forest
  • Determine capability to ensure public safety - catastrophic fire, explosion and chemical spills
  • Aquifer contamination – ground water and highly critical aquifer
  • Puget Sound – acidification and pollution
  • Quality of Life
    • MCRA next door
    • Noise, air pollution, and proximity to residential area, schools, hospital, and senior housing, health impact, etc.
