National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)

Camp Dawson Environmental Office

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 is our nation's basic charter for protection of the environment.  It establishes policy, sets goals, and provides means for carryin out the policy.


In accordance with NEPA, all federal agencies must prepare written statements on the environmental impacts of a proposed action.


The provisions to ensure that federal agencies act according to the letter and spirit of NEPA are in the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations for implementing NEPA (43 CFR 1500-1508).


Documents for Public Review


The Federal Government and Camp Dawson's environmental procedure for the NEPA program requires actions to be evaluated for environmental impacts.  Depending on the project parameters, certain actions require an Environmental Assessment (EA) document to be created.  This combines a detailed description of the proposed action, an assessment of action by the Camp Dawson Environmental Program's Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), and detailed analysis by a NEPA Analyst.  EA documents are legally reviewed and when complete, released to the public for review and commentary.  In an effort to better communicate with the surrounding communities and the public in general, EA documents out for public review will be posted on this website.  To submit comments and provide feedback, please use the contact information in each specific document.
