National BLM NEPA Guidelines
BLM NEPA Webguide

Welcome to the ELKO NEPA Website

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 is a basic charter for the protection of the environment. All proposed actions affecting public lands or resources must be reviewed for NEPA compliance. NEPA procedures ensure that environmental information is available to public officials and citizens before decisions are made and before actions are taken.  Links are provided at the right to view various levels of NEPA, BLM Guidelines, and for general information about the NEPA Process.


Many documents throughout BLM published after October 1, 2011 are available on the National website. See
