The DOE NEPA regulations state that when it is necessary to take actions to control the immediate impacts of an emergency, “DOE shall consult with CEQ as soon as possible regarding alternative arrangements for emergency actions having significant environmental impacts. DOE shall document, including publishing a notice in the Federal Register, emergency actions covered by this paragraph within 30 days after such action occurs; this documentation shall identify any adverse impacts from the actions taken, further mitigation necessary, and any NEPA documents that may be required.” (10 CFR 1021.343(a))


This table lists emergency situations in which DOE consulted with CEQ on alternative arrangements for NEPA compliance and provides links to related notices and special environmental analyses (SEAs).
