From the State Impact article:

A letter from the Save the Loyalsock Coalition urges DCNR to model public participation on the federal government’s process. The coalition includes groups such as PennFuture, PennEnvironment, the PA Forest Coalition, and Sierra Club’s Pennsylvania Chapter.

“We recommend that the Department institute a version of an environmental impact analysis process similar to the one used under the National Environmental Policy Act,” the groups write. “Such a process would allow for public participation and ensure that all environmental impacts of a proposed action are accounted for and evaluated.”
