CEQA Compliance

California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Notifications

Enacted in 1970, CEQA is a California statute that requires state and local agencies to identify the significant environmental impacts of their projects and to avoid or mitigate those impacts, if feasible.

The following list contains CEQA documents pertaining to calendar year 2023. You can view CEQA documents for prior calendar years online.


National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Notifications

Also enacted in 1970, NEPA establishes federal environmental policies requiring all federal agencies to assess the environmental impacts of proposed projects prior to making decisions such as issuing permits or spending federal money. The principal goal of NEPA is to ensure that projects are designed, located, and operated in ways that reduce adverse effects and increase beneficial impacts. All projects that receive federal funding are subject to NEPA requirements.
