NEPA Process and Documentation


NEPA StudiesARC has extensive experience preparing documents in support of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.  The National Environmental Policy Act requires federal agencies to determine if a proposed agency action has the potential to affect the quality of the human and natural environment.  ARC understands the challenges this process can create for our government and private sector clients.  We work proactively to first understand the proposed action, and then evaluate and communicate potential options related to the advancement of the proposed action.

Our staff is experienced managing the NEPA process throughout the varying levels of  required analysis to include categorical exclusion (CE), environmental assessment/finding of no significant impact (EA/FONSI) and finally, the preparation of an environmental impact statement (EIS).   ARC has extensive experience in preparing environmental documents in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act and in accordance with the guidelines of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) as well as those specific requirements of participating federal agencies.
