01 NCAC 25 .0504             INTERNAL REVIEW

(a)  Once an EA is prepared, the State Project Agency must decide if it is satisfied as to the completeness of its assessment.  If no significant environmental impacts are predicted, the agency may then submit both the EA and FONSI to the Clearinghouse for review.

(b)  The agency may choose to submit only the EA and use the comments, if any, to determine how to proceed.  If an agency chooses this procedure, the review process for the EA shall be the same as Rule .0506 of this Section for review of an EA or a FONSI.  If an agency proceeds with an Environmental Impact Statement, then the review process shall be the same as that in Section .0600 of this Chapter.
