Archived Citizens' Petitions

Under Minnesota's Environmental Review process, citizens can petition to request an environmental assessment worksheet (EAW) on a project that is not subject to a mandatory EAW.

  • If the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, as the responsible governmental unit, determines there is potential for significant environmental effects, the project proposer must complete an EAW.
  • If the petition is denied, the project proceeds to permitting.

These petitions to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency were denied or the projects withdrawn.
