Epitome Energy - Environmental Assessment Worksheet

We invite you to comment on the draft Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) for the proposed Epitome Energy project in Crookston, Minnesota.

Epitome Energy proposes to build a 42-million-bushel soybean processing facility. During the environmental review process, the MPCA reviewed potential impacts on local geology, soils, groundwater, surface water, and other potential environmental impacts. In the draft EAW, the MPCA found the project has minimal impact on groundwater and surface water.

The Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) is not a decision and does not determine whether the project moves forward. It is an information-gathering document used to inform decision-makers including those issuing land use and environmental permits that are required for the project. The environmental review process provides an opportunity for public input during the public comment period.

The public will have an opportunity to ask the MPCA questions about the EAW and environmental review process at a virtual public information meeting on Thursday, August 4 from 6-7:30 PM.
