WHAT IS NEPA?
  • The Act 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.
  • NEPA requirements are invoked when airports,
    buildings, military complexes, highways, parkland
    purchases, and other federal activities are
    proposed. Environmental Assessments and
    Environmental Impact Statements, which are
    assessments of the likelihood of impacts from
    alternative courses of action, are required from
    all Federal agencies and are the most visible
    NEPA requirements.
  • NEPA was enacted by Congress.
