Environmental Impact Statements are required of federal agencies for major projects or legislative proposals that may significantly affect the environment. These statements describe the positive and negative effects of the proposed undertaking and cite possible alternative actions. Impact Statements are required by the National Environmental Policy Act. The EPA reviews and responds to filed impact statements and makes available a national EIS filing system as well as publishing a weekly notice of EIS documents available for review.
