The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) was the first modern environmental statute enacted by Congress. Under the act, all federal actions-from funding for new highways to the establishment of new hazardous waste sites-are required to undergo an environmental impact study that explains the project's potential dangers before funds can be allotted. Here, a leading expert in the environmental field provides a detailed, step-by-step guide to getting projects through the evaluation and approval process.
