The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) process identifies and analyzes environmental impacts associated with governmental decisions. It is designed to ensure that environmental values are considered during decision-making.

DES is conducting an environmental review for the LCM Global program, which will govern a series of actions on a segment of the West Capitol Campus. The environmental review is called a non-project, or "programmatic," SEPA checklist. It will study the cumulative impacts of planned actions, including updates to the cultural and historical character and composition of the segment of West Capitol Campus. It will also study the cumulative impacts related to construction projects on the Newhouse, Pritchard and O'Brien project.

More information about the SEPA process can be found on the Washington State Department of Ecology Overview of Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) website.
