GENERAL CONFORMITY - INTERAGENCY CONSULTATION
While no procedures have been specified for General Conformity Interagency consultation, a similar process has been used to ensure that applicability analyses follow procedures that are acceptable to agencies involved. Key steps include:
Contact information Project description, location, etc. Period of performance Relevant SIP/Maintenance Plan Mixture of activities foreseen (e.g., construction, operation, etc.)
It is highly recommended that the above information should be forwarded to ADEC for an interagency consultation prior to the conduct of an applicability analysis. ADEC will identify the relevant agencies, share the information with those agencies and, based on the consultation, determine which procedures should be employed in the applicability analysis.
