How Do Federal Agencies Submit EISs and EAs to EPA?
Where should NEPA documents be sent for review?
Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) must be sent to both EPA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and to the EPA region where the project is located. For information on how to officially file EISs with EPA Headquarters visit the Office of Federal Activities web site.
EISs in CO, ND, SD, UT and WY should be sent to:
Suzanne Bohan, Program Director
NEPA Compliance and Review Program
EPA Region 8 (8EPR-N)
1595 Wynkoop Street
Denver, CO 80202-1129
Generally, 3 copies (2 hard copies and 1 CD) of the EIS should be submitted for review to the Region 8 EPA office.
EISs in MT should be sent to:
EPA Region 8 - Montana Office
10 West 15th Street, Suite 3200
Helena, MT 59626
Generally, 1 hard copy and 1 CD copy of the EIS should be submitted to the MT EPA office.
Should I send EPA Environmental Assessments?
Although not required to review Environmental Assessments, EPA Region 8 does review some Environmental Assessments (EAs). We are particularly interested in seeing EAs for projects/decisions with more extensive environmental analyses, for example, EAs which exceed the 10-page maximum suggested by the 40 Questions guidance. EPA requests copies of all EAs in which the agency is determining whether impacts are significant. If an EA shows that a project has significant impacts, an Environmental Impact Statement needs to be prepared.
