The applicant is required to provide the Department of Environmental Quality with an environmental impact statement showing comprehensive analysis of the impacts, including cumulative impacts, that would occur in the source and receiving basins; an evaluation of alternatives to the proposed interbasin transfer; and a description of measures to mitigate any adverse impacts that may arise.
