The significance thresholds for environmental justice impacts are established at the county level. For this analysis of baseline conditions of the existing environment, individual Census Block Groups are assumed to contain disproportionately high percentages of minority or low-income populations if the percentage of minority or low-income persons in the Census Block Group exceeds 50 percent of the population within a Census Block Group, or if the percentage is meaningfully greater than the associated county.
