National Environmental Policy Act document reviews

The National Environmental Policy Act, enacted in 1969, requires preparation of environmental documents for certain categories of federal projects and requires opportunity for review by state and local governments as well as for public participation. In accordance with the Code of Virginia § 10.1-1183, DEQ coordinates the Commonwealth's review of National Environmental Policy Act documents.
