The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) defines a process which all Federal agencies must undertake to analyze impacts to the human and natural environment resulting from their proposed actions. The steps proceed in the following sequence:

NEPA wheel
  1. Proposal of an Action
  2. Development of Alternatives
  3. Public Scoping
  4. Description of Current Environment
  5. Analysis of Environmental Impacts
  6. Public Comment
  7. Issuance of a Decision
  8. Implementation

The WFF Environmental Office assists in the evaluation of environmental impacts associated with institutional and mission-related projects. We provide the following services:

  • Review new or potential projects for inclusion within the envelope of the WFF Site-wide Environmental Assessment (EA) or other existing analyses,
  • Assist in the preparation of Records of Environmental Consideration (RECs; click here for a template) for projects that fall within the envelope of the Site-wide EA,
  • Assist in the management and/or preparation of EAs and Environmental Impact Statements,
  • Coordinate public and regulatory comment process and attend public meetings,
  • Assist in ensuring that all required environmental permits are obtained, and
  • Coordinate NASA NEPA training for relevant project personnel.
