Significant impact. For the proposed construction of a new correctional facility or the proposed expansion
of an existing facility, if the proposal is large or complex and/or controversial
because of the nature of possible environmental impacts, and/or if any EA determines
that the project will have a significant impact on the environment, an environmental
impact statement (EIS) will be required. For those projects that clearly will have significant environmental impact, a grantee
can save time and resources by initiating the EIS immediately without going through
the EA process.
