Online SEPA Register - A list of SEPA records received by Ecology since 2000.
SEPA Register document submittal procedures
Pursuant to the SEPA rules, (WAC 197-11-508), Ecology is responsible for maintaining procedures for how agencies provide documents to be entered in our database and published daily on the statewide SEPA Register. Lead agencies are responsible for submitting the documents “promptly” and in accordance to our established procedures.
Ecology now requires that all SEPA document submittals for the Register are received in an electronic format. Currently we are only able to accept these documents via e-mail or computer disc. Unfortunately SEPA Register submittals cannot contain only a notification with a weblink to the documents because of the distribution requirements in the SEPA rules and the transitory nature of websites (but we’re happy to include the website location in the database record).
What documents must be submitted?
What documents may be submitted?
What documents should not be submitted?
Any document that is not a SEPA or NEPA document or notice – please do not send the “SEPA Register” any non-SEPA permit or program-related notices. These can be submitted directly to the applicable regional SEPA contacts.
When should documents be submitted to Ecology?
Please send us your documents on the day of issuance (or one day prior). Note that the SEPA comment period is determined by the day the document is sent from the lead agancy and no the date that Ecology receives it.
Ecology does not provide notification to the lead agency that a document has been posted on the Register. The SEPA Register gets updated every midnight and lead agencies can check the SEPA Register at https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/separ/Register/ShowRegisterTable.aspx to ensure the document was correctly listed on the Register.
