The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), Conditional Use Permit (CUP), Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Critical Area Code (CAC) Certificate of Compliance permitting processes will address the concerns. (See the Permitting section for more information on these permitting processes.) The project must pass these environmental safeguard steps before any development may begin. For example, Best Management Practices (BMPs) must be detailed and show how the lead will be contained then removed from the site, before permits are issued, certainly before any construction begins. Public hearings will be held for these permits.
