Environmental Assessment Worksheet

What is an EAW?

An Enviromental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) is a document designed to provide a brief analysis and overview of the potential environmental impacts for a specific project and to help the RGU determine whether an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is necessary. The EAW consists of a standard list of 31 questions and is meant to set out the basic facts of the project’s environmental impacts. The EAW is not meant to approve or disapprove a project, but is simply a source of information to guide other approvals and permitting decisions. The information in the EAW process has two functions: to determine whether an EIS is needed, and to indicate how the project can be modified to lessen its environmental impacts; such modifications may be imposed as permit conditions by regulatory agencies.
