The Royal Gorge Field Office NEPA register contains current EIS, EA, CX and DNA actions.

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 Special Designation listing includes the following abbreviations:  WSA (Wilderness Study Area), ACEC (Area of Critical Environmental Concern), WSR (Wild and Scenic River ), or W (Wilderness). A name in this column indicates that the proposed action is within that special designation area.
