NEPA Services

NEPA Services

BEC has been providing NEPA services for our clients for over 20 years. Our team of biologists, wildlife scientists, wetland scientists, and archaeologist make sure projects move smoothly and efficiently through the NEPA process, ensuring all of our client’s regulatory requirements are met.

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 was the first major Federal legislative effort to incorporate considerations into government decision-making requiring environment evaluations be studied prior to the approval of any major federal actions (construction) or federal permitting. NEPA fundamentally altered how lawmakers and regulators approached human impacts on the natural world by requiring federal agencies to prepare Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) for all major Federal actions significantly affecting the environment.

NEPA typically includes completion of Environmental Assessments (EAs), Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) and Categorical Exclusion (CE) documentation before projects can receive funding. It may also include site screening for a variety of cultural, environmental, and socioeconomic issues.

BEC provides a wide range of NEPA related services to private industry and government, where environmental conditions must be considered. Our services are designed to help establish a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) or mitigate issues as effectively as possible.
