Welcome to the Project Questionnaire

The Project Questionnaire (OPAS) is a tool developed by the Department of Ecology (Ecology) to help you determine which local, state, and federal environmental permits, approvals, or licenses for Washington State you will need for your project based on an online questionnaire process.

The ORIA Project Questionnaire helps you

  • Determine which local, state, and federal permits you might need for your project.
  • Start planning for your permits early.
  • Identify agency contacts for each permit.
  • Learn detailed information about individual permit requirements.
