The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is the basic national charter for the protection of the environment and requires Federal decision-makers, at all levels, to consider the environmental consequences of a proposed action in the decision-making process before deciding to take an action. NEPA is a procedural law that requires full public disclosure of environmental impacts, alternatives, and mitigation measures expected from proposed actions. Actions subject to NEPA include all new and some continuing or recurring activities, including projects, exercises and/or approved programs entirely or partly funded, assisted, conducted or regulated by a federal agency. Typical actions may include implementation or approval of specific projects, such as construction or management activities located aboard MCAS Miramar (i.e., MILCON projects, public/private venture projects, special projects, and land acquisition) as well as training events and routine maintenance.
