NEPA Documentation

Hub Quarter Landing The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) requires every federal government agency within the executive branch (excluding the Office of the President) to undertake an assessment of the potential environmental effects and project alternatives of proposed federal actions. States typically have similar requirements for certain state funded projects. KES provides professional services throughout the NEPA process. We begin by working closely with the design team during the conceptual design phase to identify environmental considerations and project logistics issues. KES performs or manages the necessary studies and prepares the necessary documents including: Proposed Action and Alternative Analysis (DOPAA), Categorical Exclusion, Environmental Assessment, or requisite portions of the Environmental Impact Statement. KES also performs and manages interagency coordination, public notification and informational meetings, and has experience preparing the public record, Federal Consistency Determination, Notice of Availability, Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Record of Decision (ROD) for the lead agency. KES has performed assessments for visual effects, geology, soils, water resources, coastal resources, biological resources; social economics, hazardous and toxic substance, and has managed studies for air quality, noise, transportation and cultural resources.
