The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) are important and significant environmental laws designed to protect the environment and our natural resources. These laws require government agencies at the national, state, and local levels to conduct an environmental assessment of a proposed project’s impact before the project receives approval. Environmental assessments under CEQA and NEPA are designed to inform government decision-makers and the public about the potentially significant environmental impacts of a proposed project and to identify ways to prevent and mitigate possible damages to the environment.
