Keeping Page Counts Manageable in Environmental Documents

Categorized Under: Environment



The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and many state “mini-NEPAs,” such as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), require detailed and often highly technical studies to document that potential impacts on the environment have been considered prior to approving a project. NEPA and CEQA regulations recommend page limits for these environmental compliance documents, but the limits are often not observed, resulting in long, cumbersome documents. This article presents five practical ways in which document preparers can shorten their documents and thereby save time and money.
