Environmental Studies

State and federal laws require a formal review of projects that may affect the environment. An environmental document was prepared to address the state law, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and the federal law, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). A joint state and federal document, Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Assessment (DEIR/EA), was prepared to evaluate the potential alternatives for environmental impacts, while taking into account the Project Criteria.
