  1. The table of contents shall include the list of elements of the environment (WAC 197-11-444), indicating those elements or portions of elements that do not involve significant adverse impacts (reference WAC 197-11-440[3][b]).
  2. The lead agency may include, at its discretion, in an EIS or its appendix, the analysis of any impact relevant to the agency’s decision, whether or not the impact is an environmental one. The inclusion of such analysis may or may not be based upon comments received during the scoping process. The provision for combining documents may be used (WAC 197-11-640). The EIS shall comply with the format requirements of WAC 197-11-400 through 197-11-500.
