  CERP - Comprehensive Environmental Review Process  

The Comprehensive Environmental Review Process (CERP) coordinates internal reviews of actions funded or performed by IDNR to ensure that they comply with relevant state and federal environmental statutes. ‘Action’ includes anything that disturbs the land, water, or air.

The CERP Manual provides a description of the process and its procedures, and lists department actions that are exempt from the review. To initiate CERP, applicants can submit their projects online using EcoCAT - the Ecological Compliance Assessment Tool - or complete the CERP form and send it to the CERP coordinator in the Office of Realty and Environmental Planning.
