National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is a law that was passed by Congress in 1969 and signed into law on January 1, 1970. Since that signing, NEPA has changed the way the U.S. Government does business. NEPA has made Federal agencies accountable to the public for the environmental impacts of their actions.  NRCS staff in Wisconsin are committed to ensuring NEPA requirements are met.
