NEPA Compliance

Environmentally Protected AreaESS has extensive experience preparing environmental documents under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) as well as state environmental protection acts. Our staff have managed and prepared Environmental Assessments (EA) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) documents under NEPA, Environmental Impact Report (EIR) documents under multiple state regulations and Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) under international regulations. Our experience ranges from those projects triggered by the issuance of a federal permit to those funded by a federal agency and in need of a 3rd party EIS document.

We pride ourselves on not only preparing technical sound and defensible environmental documents but also ensuring that the scope and level of environmental analysis is commensurate with the nature of the project or federal action.

Comprehensive NEPA Environmental Documents

ESS prepares comprehensive environmental documents that describe purpose and need, evaluate alternatives, characterize the affected environment, and identify the environmental consequences associated with a proposed action. These documents follow Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ) guidance and guidelines, as well as the NEPA-implementation regulations and policies of various participating agencies. ESS also works with our clients to develop regulatory strategies, assist in scoping, and support agency consultations and public participation efforts. We have prepared a number of NEPA environmental documents including:
