EA-1905: Finding of No Significant Impact

The DOE CBFO reviewed the BLM EA and found that the analysis adequately covered all areas of concern, but did not include a discussion of intentional destructive acts, which it is DOE policy to include in all of its EAs (DOE Memorandum, from the Office of NEPA Policy and Compliance to the DOE NEPA Community, December 1, 2006). Therefore, DOE is including a discussion of intentional destructive acts in this FONSI.

Based on the analysis in the EA, and the additional analysis in this FONSI, DOE has determined that funding the proposed action does not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human or physical environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq. Therefore, an environmental impact statement is not required.
