Abstract or Summary
  • Upon enactment of the National Environmental Policy Act in 1970, a new era in environmental concern within the federal government began. As the processes and procedures of compliance with the act became refined through experience and regulation, the intent of the legislation has increasingly become integrated into decision making within federal agencies. But because these procedures evolved, the specifics of complying with the act have changed over time. When the Council on Environmental Quality passed binding regulations concerning NEPA compliance in 1978, the rate of change slowed, but was not stopped. The changes in procedures can result in delays in project planning until the new process becomes incorporated. A guide for preparation of environmental documents can reduce delays caused by uncertainty concerning current requirements. This paper traces the development of NEPA and the how it relates to one federal agency, the Federal Aviation Administration. With the stage set, discussion turns to the development of one NEPA-compliance document, the Environmental Assessment, for FAA-administered projects. The work related to developing Environmental Assessments by private consultants is the primary concern, and a guide based on FAA guidelines for this work was prepared.
