What is an Environmental Assessment?
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. §4321 et seq. (1969)) was one of the first laws written that establishes the broad national framework for protecting our environment. NEPA requires federal agencies to assess the environmental effects of their proposed actions prior to making decisions. Environmental Assessments (EAs) are valuations of the environmental and related social and economic effects, to determine the likelihood of impacts from alternative courses of action. The purpose of this EA is to analyze the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project, and to determine whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
