Combined Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)

 What is an Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact?

An Environmental Assessment is a concise public document that serves to briefly provide sufficient evidence and analysis for determining whether to prepare an environmental impact statement or a finding of no significant impact. It identifies:

  • The need for the proposal, the proposed action and alternatives, environmental impacts, and agencies and persons consulted on the project.

The Finding of No Significant Impact presents the reasons why the proposed action and alternatives will not have a significant effect on the human environment and for which an environmental impacts statement will not be prepared.
