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. The levels of review are:

  • Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Record of Decision (ROD)
  • Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)
  • Categorical Exclusion (CX)
  • Determination of NEPA Adequacy (DNA)

Public comments are accepted on all projects during scoping and review periods for an EA or EIS.  Regardless of the level of NEPA review, interested publics may appeal a BLM decision to implement a proposed activity plan or project.  Additional information about the appeal process, NEPA procedures and the resource management plans that guide all activities of the Elko Field Office is available from the following:
