BASIC NEPA: THE LAW, LOGIC, AND LANGUAGE OF THE NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY ACT
POL-302
Jun 11, 2019 - Jun 12, 2019
Missoula, MT

Attendees will learn the basic and fundamental principles of NEPA practice in this 2-day course all the way from what NEPA is and where it came from, through how it works and when it applies, all the way through scoping NEPA documents and techniques to review the adequacy of NEPA documents. Completion of this course is excellent preparation for getting the most out of our Advanced NEPA** course.

All NEPA processes are explained: Categorical Exclusion, Environmental Assessment/Finding of No Significant Impact (EA/FONSI), and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Included is a substantial handout with graphic models, updated case lists that support the models, and sample documents. All materials are based on statutes, regulations, and NEPA case law. Attendees may wish to keep the course material to serve as a reference in the workplace.

Major themes include: how to make the findings required by law; how to make the finding of no significant impact in particular; the giving of reasons; timing the NEPA process to the decision making process; all good legal reasons not to prepare an EIS; scoping a reasonable range of alternatives; and an approach to the cumulative impacts analysis that complies literally with the regulatory definition of cumulative impacts. Discussions and questions are encouraged.

DID YOU KNOW

The NEPA-implementing regulations have not been significantly amended since they were first published in 1978. But NEPA case law is constantly evolving as new issues are presented to the courts and new judicial opinions are published. This course is updated according to the latest judicial opinions.

DID YOU KNOW

The categorical exclusion is an exclusion from an EIS but it is not an exclusion from NEPA. Instead, it is one of three processes for compliance with NEPA, along with the EA/FONSI and the EIS. This course covers the NEPA process including scoping, supplementation, and tiering.

DID YOU KNOW

Determinations of compliance with other environmental statutes are integral to the preparation of an EA or an EIS. Thus the Endangered Species Act and the National Historical Preservation Act, for example, are woven into the course material along with other statutes and Executive Orders.

** For an advanced, seminar-style discussion of NEPA issues, attend our one-day Advanced NEPA Workshop, immediately following this course. There is a $50 discount when purchasing the 2 courses together. **

Intended Audience:

This workshop is designed to serve both as a comprehensive introduction for those new to NEPA and a refresher for more experienced professionals. The course is beneficial for federal agency staff and decision makers, attorneys, consultants, as well as members of environmental organizations and interested citizens who are concerned about the environmental effects of federal actions. Those who have taken this course in years past will benefit from updated materials based on the newest judicial opinions. Even those who have worked with NEPA their entire careers will stand to learn more about the secrets to successful NEPA compliance.

Registration: Earlybird pricing for registrations $595 / $545*; $645 / $595* thereafter. (*Reduced tuition available to employees of Native American tribes, nonprofits, and government agencies; students; and NAEP members).

Advanced NEPA-An Intensive One-Day Seminar With Solutions to the Most Difficult NEPA Problems
POL-500
Jun 13, 2019 - Jun 13, 2019
Missoula, MT

You’ve been to training on the basics, the fundamentals, the essentials, the step-by-step. You’ve been to refreshers and updates. It’s time to take the National Environmental Policy Act to the next level – Advanced NEPA.

NEPA is often criticized for costing too much, taking too long, and accomplishing too little. If you have any role in the NEPA process, you have a stake in the answers discussed in this seminar.

You are encouraged to bring your own questions for discussion and resolution. This is a seminar format with significant time reserved for discussion rather than lecture. Handout materials are substantial and based on statutes, regulations, and case law rather than on opinion or past practice.

Expect a fast-paced day. During this seminar the questions that do not arise in the basic courses will be asked and answered – questions related to the categorical exclusion, the environmental assessment, the finding of no significant impact, and the environmental impact statement.

Intended Audience:

Since this is an advanced course, it will be assumed that attendees will know the vocabulary, the acronyms, and the basic NEPA process. Attendees should be at least vaguely familiar with the statute, the regulations, and the guidance memoranda. Attendees should have substantial experience in the preparation of NEPA documents, their approval, or litigation over their adequacy. Project managers, senior environmental professionals, seasoned NEPA practitioners, writers and editors, legal counsel, and decision makers themselves will get the most out of this seminar.

** This course is designed to be attended AFTER our 2-day presentation of "National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA): Writing the Perfect EA/FONSI, or EIS". We recommend registering for that course prior to registering for this workshop. When registering for both courses together, there is a $50 discount. ** 

Registration: Early bird rate $595 / $545*, $645 / $595* thereafter. *Reduced tuition available to employees of Native American tribes, nonprofits, and government agencies; students; and NAEP members

Basic Environmental Geophysics (BEG)
Jun 18, 2019 - Jun 19, 2019
Richmond, CA

This 2-day course provides individuals who have little or no geophysical exploration experience with practical information on the strengths and limitations of the most used geophysical techniques on hazardous waste sites. It is intended to enable students to select the appropriate methods and to effectively supervise geophysical surveys during hazardous waste site investigations. This course bridges the gap between the 1-day Overview of Environmental Geophysics and the 3-day Introduction to Environmental Geophysics courses by providing more hands-on field equipment operating time than the 1-day course, while not requiring students to travel to a fixed facility, as with the 3-day course.

The course emphasizes three geophysical methods --magnetics, electromagnetics, and ground-penetrating radar -- most commonly employed for site characterization and waste location throughout the U.S. The course also introduces other methods --seismic refraction, gravity, resistivity, and borehole geophysics --that may be effective depending on regional or site-specific conditions, and for all methods provides examples of situations where they may be applicable. It is intended for personnel responsible for inspections, site characterization, site investigations, and removal and remedial actions at Superfund sites. The course focuses on investigation plan design; types of equipment suitable for hazardous waste site characterization; and, equipment operation and characteristic data displays for the three main methods.

The course includes lectures and field exercises. The field exercises focus on the most common techniques used for site assessment. Exercises will be conducted using Cesium Magnetometers, Time-domain and Frequency-domain Electromagnetic methods, and Ground Penetrating Radar.

After completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the various geophysical methods available for shallow environmental characterization that involves locating and resolving buried objects or evaluating site geology and hydrogeologic characteristics.
  • Understand the advantages and limitations of the magnetic, electromagnetic, seismic refraction, gravity, resistivity, borehole geophysics and ground-penetrating radar methods in environmental applications.
  • Design a field survey and operate the most frequently used types of geophysical instrumentation under field conditions.
  • Collect geophysical field data for use in resolving buried objects.

This course is a road version of a longer and more involved course usually offered at a specially constructed field site. The road course includes outdoor exercises. Participants should dress for field work.
