NEPA Project Examples:

Some “Go”s, Some “No Go”s

Much of the economic development in Alaska is dependent on the development of natural resources that require federal permits for access across federal land, filling wetlands, harvesting timber or discharging water, for example.

These are considered “major federal actions” so a NEPA level analysis is required.
