EEC has performed numerous projects on environmental impact analysis in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and has conducted environmental assessment (EA) and categorical exclusion (CE) documentation for review by Federal agencies and Native American Tribes. EEC also prepares Environmental Impact Documents (EID) for state-level project approvals.
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) was one of the first laws ever written that established the broad national framework for protecting our environment. NEPA's basic policy is to assure that all branches of government give proper consideration to the environment prior to undertaking any major federal action that significantly affects the environment.
Guidance for complying with NEPA is contained in the Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ) NEPA regulations (40 CFR, Parts 1500-1508). The primary objective of NEPA documentation is to ensure that every Federal action/project conducted to expand existing or construct new facilities provide an evaluation of multiple public interest review factors associated with proposed projects to determine if there would be direct or indirect impacts to the human environment and determine if mitigation is warranted.
Implementing early planning is essential to the NEPA documentation process.
Some of the existing conditions of the human and natural environments evaluated relative to NEPA documentation include:
Wild and Scenic Rivers
Threatened & Endangered Species Habitat
Vegetation and Wildlife
Social & Economic Conditions
Employment and Income
Lifestyle and Cultural Setting
Population and Housing
Cultural Resources & Tribal Consultation
Agency & Tribal Coordination
Section 106 Compliance
Sensitive Area Identification/Avoidance
Section 4(f) & 6(f) Lands Identification
Human Environment & Environmental Conditions
Scenic Landscape Views
EEC has prepared NEPA documentation for several Federal/State agencies and Native American Tribes. The purpose of environmental assessments is to ensure proposed actions comply with NEPA (as well as other applicable laws) to address potential impacts to the natural and human environment.
