NEPA Analysis

Project development necessary for implementation of land use plans (Resource Management Plans) requires analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). NEPA ensures that the BLM (and other Federal agencies) consider the impact of an action on the quality of the human environment before decisions are made and the action is taken. Two types of NEPA documents that are prepared and provide opportunity for public involvement are Environmental Impact Statements and Environmental Assessments.  There are certain actions which have been categorically excluded from further NEPA analysis because it has been determined that the actions have insignificant effects on the human environment.  These actions are documented in a Categorical Exclusion review.  Until recently, these types of actions were not subject to public review.  New categories of excluded actions, including fuels and forest health treatments, now provide for a public review period for those actions.

Project planning updates provide BLM a means to achieve public scoping by notifying the public of the status of projects in the process of planning and analysis for implementation in the near future or currently being implemented. These updates are produced annually for the Lakeview Resource Area and quarterly for the Klamath Falls Resource Area.
