Benton Clean Air Agency

State Environmental Protection Act

What is State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA)?

Washinton State policy that requires state and local agencies to consider the likely environmental consequences of a proposal before approving or denying the proposal. Benton Clean Air is not usually the SEPA lead in a project, generally the county or one of the cities takes that role. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for guidance on your SEPA applications.
