Environmental Assessment Worksheet

What is an EAW?

An Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) is a document designed to provide a brief analysis and overview of the potential environmental impacts for a specific project, and consists of a standard list of 31 questions. It is not meant to approve or disapprove a project, but to guide other approvals and permitting decisions. The information in the EAW process has two functions: to determine whether an Environmental Impact Statement is needed (EIS), 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. EAWs follow requirements in the Minnesota Environmental Protection Act and rules found on the Environmental Quality Board web page.
