WHAT IS AN EIS?

An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is a full-disclosure, public document that includes an analysis of a full range of alternatives (including the “No-Build,” or do nothing alternative) and an assessment of potential environmental impacts through the evaluation process. A broad range of environmental issues have been studied and the findings reported, such as: water quality, air quality, cultural resources, biological resources, socioeconomic conditions, community cohesion, noise and more. The EIS includes a summary of the public involvement efforts and the context-sensitive solutions process. This document is required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969.

The following are links to the various stages of the EIS documentation.
