Frequently Asked Question

Why does the EPA publish a 30-days Notice?

The 30-days Public Notice is a way to promote the participation of members of the public in the process of integrating environmental concerns in planning for development on a sustainable basis; it applies only to new developmental projects. The public has 30 days to lodge an appeal with the EAB against the EPA decision. The EAB will either confirm or reject the decision within a reasonable time (EPA-Environmental Guidance for the Development, Implementation and Operations of Projects, 2006).
