Scoping Notices

"Scoping" is for projects in the earliest stages of planning.  At the scoping stage, detailed information on a project's design, alternatives, and environmental impacts does not yet exist.  Sponsoring agencies are asking for comments from other agencies and from the public as to the scope of alternatives and environmental impacts that should be considered for further study.  Send your comments to the contact person listed for the project by the date indicated.

No Scoping Notice has been submitted for review and comment.


 
Post-Scoping Notices:   Environmental Impact Evaluation Not Required
 
This category is required by the October 2010 revision of the Generic Environmental Classification Document for State Agencies. A notice is published here if the sponsoring agency, after publication of a scoping notice and consideration of comments received, has determined that an  Environmental Impact Evaluation (EIE) does not need to be prepared for the proposed project.

The following Post-Scoping Notices have been submitted for publication in this edition.

1. Post-Scoping Notice for the Lathrop Road Extension Water Main 

 

Municipality where project will be located: Plainfield

 

CEPA Determination:  On June 2, 2015 the Department of Public Health (DPH) published a Notice of Scoping to solicit public comments for this project in the Environmental Monitor.  The DPH received comments from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection on July 6, 2015  and July 10, 2015. The DPH has taken those comments into consideration and has concluded that the project does not require the preparation of Environmental Impact Evaluation under CEPA.

 

The agency’s conclusion is documented in a Memorandum of Findings and Determination  and an Environmental Assessment Summary.

2. Post-Scoping Notice for Covey Road Water Main Extension 

 

Municipality where project will be located:  Burlington

 

CEPA Determination:  On May 5, 2015, the Department of Public Health (DPH) published a Notice of Scoping  to solicit public comments for this project in the Environmental Monitor.  

Based on the DPH’s environmental assessment of this project which includes an internal memorandum dated June 4, 2015, comments provided by the DEEP dated June 4, 2015 and the Town of Burlington’s response to DPH’s memorandum dated June 22, 2015, it has been determined that the project does not require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Evaluation (EIE) under CEPA.  The DPH will coordinate with the Town of Burlington to ensure that the recommendations by the DEEP are implemented and will serve as a resource for the Town to utilize when developing mechanisms to protect and preserve the integrity of the valuable natural resources within its boundaries.

After Scoping, an agency that wishes to undertake an action that could significantly affect the environment must produce, for public review and comment, a detailed written evaluation of the expected environmental impacts. This is called an Environmental Impact Evaluation (EIE).


No Environmental Impact Evaluation has been submitted for publication in this edition.



Connecticut General Statutes Section 4b-47  requires public notice of most proposed sales and transfers of state-owned lands. The public has an opportunity to comment on any such proposed transfer. Each notice includes an address where comments should be sent. Read more about the process. 


No State Land Transfer Notice has been submitted for publication in this edition.
