Nev. Admin. Code § 445A.753 - Provision of financial assistance following finding of no significant impact

Current through March 28, 2022

1. After an environmental assessment has been prepared and the issued finding of no significant impact becomes effective for the facility plan for the study area, a commitment of financial assistance may be made without preparation of an additional finding of no significant impacts, unless the Division determines that the project or environmental conditions have changed significantly from those which underwent environmental review.
2. The Division shall ensure itself that mitigation measures identified in the facility plan or in the finding of no significant impact will be implemented by the applicant. This must be done by conditioning the agreement for financial assistance and discharge permit upon compliance with all agreed-upon mitigation measures.
3. In any case in which an environmental assessment or categorical exclusion is 5 or more years old, the Division shall reevaluate the project, environmental conditions and public views and, before awarding financial assistance:
(a) Issue a public notice reaffirming its decision to proceed with the project without revising the environmental assessment;
(b) Update information and prepare, issue and distribute a revised environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact; or
(c) Withdraw the finding of no significant impact and publish a notice of intent to produce an environmental impact statement. The Division shall thereafter prepare, issue and distribute an environmental impact statement and record of decision.
