Congaree Swamp National Monument, SC4.1 Environmental Impact Statements — Introduction

NEPA (section 102(2)(C)) requires you to prepare an EIS whenever your park proposes or approves an action whose impacts on the human environment may be significant. CEQ defines actions as “projects and programs entirely or partly financed, assisted, conducted, regulated, or approved by federal agencies; new or revised agency rules, regulations, plans, policies, or procedures; and legislative proposals.” Federal approvals of permits for private applicants are also considered actions that trigger the need for NPS NEPA analysis (1508.18).
