Stepping Through the SEQR Process

Steps toward satisfying SEQR: Step through the process by clicking the Step 1 link and after reading each page, click on the link for the next step which you will find at or near the bottom of each page. Or you may click on the links that follow. While the image maps a branching path between steps 4 and 5 and between step 6 and 7, this text version makes a linear representation. You do not go on to step 5 unless you are faced with impacts that cannot be avoided or mitigated through conditions placed on a permit. At step 6 you may review the Draft EIS and determine that it must be returned for revision rather than proceeding to step 7.
