ENB - Statewide Notices 11/28/2012

Public Notice

Notice of the Final Scope for the Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement For Amendments of Title 6 New York Code of Rules and Regulations - Part 617 State Environmental Quality Review.

This notice is issued pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 617 (implementing regulations for Article 8 of the Environmental Conservation Law, referred to as the State Environmental Quality Review Act or SEQR).

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) proposes to amend 6 NYCRR Part 617 to streamline the regulatory process without sacrificing meaningful environmental review.

NYSDEC has chosen to prepare a generic environmental impact statement (GEIS) as the means to 1) discuss the objectives and rationale for the proposed amendments, 2) assess any environmental impacts of the proposed regulatory change, 3) present alternative measures that are under consideration and 4) provide the maximum opportunity for public participation in the rulemaking process.

Upon review of the comments received on the draft scope, the NYS DEC has prepared a final scope of issues. It is posted on the NYS DEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/83389.html. This document identifies the scope of issues to be addressed in the draft GEIS for the proposed amendments.

Additional information regarding the proposed amendments can be obtained by contacting the Division of Environmental Permits and Pollution Prevention at: depprmt@gw.dec.state.ny.us or by calling (518) 402-9167.
