Environmental Compliance

Overview

The Office of Capital Projects (OCP) can assist clients in understanding the environmental due diligence requirements needed in order for the sponsoring agency (DECD) to comply with its CEPA obligations.  

The purpose of the Connecticut Environmental Policy Act (CEPA) is to identify and evaluate the impacts of proposed state actions which may significantly affect the environment. This evaluation provides the decision maker with information necessary for deciding whether or not to proceed with the project. The process also provides opportunity for public review and comment.
