Environmental Speaker Series

WHAT: March's Environmental Speaker Series event will discuss National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA):  The Art of CATEXing


WHEN: 1300 ET on Tuesday, 21 March 2017.

DESCRIPTION: Categorical exclusions (CATEXs), properly applied, will constitute adequate NEPA compliance for the vast majority of USAF actions/projects.   Exact figures are not available, but 95%+ of all USAF Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) applications likely do (or should) result in application of a CATEX, rather than preparation of an Environmental Assessment or Environmental Impact Statement.   Understanding the technical requirements for CATEX application is crucial for utilizing this powerful EIAP compliance tool properly. 

Audience:  Project proponents and Base/MAJCOM personnel requiring an understanding of EIAP/NEPA compliance at the foundation/practical application level.
