All Field Office NEPA registers contain current EIS and EA actions. However, certain registers do not include CXs and DNAs. Inquiries about these documents can be obtained by contacting the appropriate Field Office NEPA Coordinator, or by visiting their Field Office public room.

Most projects also require compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).  The register serves as scoping for both NEPA and NHPA public involvement. 

*The listing of WSA (Wilderness Study Area), ACEC (Area of Critical Environmental Concern), WSR (Wild and Scenic River ), or WA (Wilderness Area) in this column indicates that the proposed action is within that special designation area.

CX = Categorical Exclusion

DNA = Documentation of NEPA Adequacy and Land Use Plan Conformance

EA = Environmental Assessment

EIS = Environmental Impact Statement
