The Georgia Environmental Policy Act of 1991 (GEPA) (O.C.G.A. 12-16-1) principally provides for the disclosure of the environmental effects of proposed state projects.  The Historic Preservation Division's role, when requested by the state agency, is to assist the agency and their applicants in assessing the impacts of projects on historic and archaeological properties listed in or eligible to be listed in the Georgia Register of Historic Places.
