National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Documents
About Environmental Documents
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) conducts a wide variety of activities in order to help achieve its goals and objectives. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 requires that all proposed actions affecting public lands or resources under an agency's jurisdiction be reviewed for compliance with the act.
BLM routinely reviews its actions for compliance with NEPA. The effects of an action on biological resources, cultural resources, and human environment are just a few of the considerations commonly addressed. The environmental review conducted for NEPA conformance may extend beyond the boundaries of public lands in order to consider the cumulative effects of the proposal.
Lists of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents by Fiscal Year:
The Surprise Field Office is implementing a new electronic and searchable database called ePlanning. This database enables users to search for a specific project/NEPA action by name, or search through a larager database of projects on a state-wide or BLM-wide basis. Not all NEPA documents will be found on this database. The NEPA register can be found at: https://www.blm.gov/epl-front-office/eplanning/nepa/nepa_register.do
For more information on this database, you can contact:
Dan Ryan, Surprise Field Office, at 530-279-2719.
