Washington Department of Ecology (DOE) has updated the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) rules. The new rules took effect on May 10. DOE has updated the SEPA Environmental Checklist and made some changes to SEPA exemptions.
DPD has revised the application form for post-permit submittals, including shop drawings, revisions, blanket permits and sprinklers. For most types of submittals, the form requires the same information as it did previously. For revisions, a checklist has been added to the form to fully identify the scope of the revision so that applicable reviews triggered by the post-permit submittal will be identified earlier and more consistently. The revisions checklist must be signed by the primary applicant or the financially responsible party.
