MEPA regulations (301 CMR 11.03) require your community or organization to file Environmental Impact Reports (EIR) for all Interbasin Transfer applications of 1 mgd or greater, or transfers otherwise considered significant by the Massachusetts Water Resources Commission (WRC).
Below you will find information on the four scopes of the Interbasin Transfer Act that are addressed in the EIR.
The Interbasin Transfer scopes are designed to follow each criterion of the Act, as it appears in the regulations. The requirements of the regulations and the Interbasin Transfer Performance Standards (used to evaluate compliance) are listed under the criterion as information to be provided in the EIR. This format should give you a better idea of how the WRC is required to make its decision under the Act.
These scopes only apply to transfers considered potentially "significant" under the Act. Requests for Determination of Applicability and Requests for Determination of Insignificance will still use the standard application forms for these types of reviews.
If you are developing a new water supply source or system to be transferred, used and discharged into a different basin and different community, you can use the EIR Scope for Communities Seeking Approval For Water Supply Development.
If you are:
you can use the EIR Scope for Communities Seeking Approval For A Wastewater Transfer.
If you are developing a water supply, to be used in the "donor" basin, but transported out of that basin for treatment and disposal as wastewater, you can use the EIR Scope for Communities Seeking Approval For A Wastewater Transfer Triggered By Development Of A Water Supply.
If you are applying for admission to the MWRA Water Supply system, you can use the EIR Scope for Communities Seeking Approval Under the Interbasin Transfer Act To Join The MWRA Water Supply System.
