Writing the 'Perfect' NEPA Cumulative Impact Analysis
Speaker: Owen Schmidt
Recorded: April 6, 2010
Length: 90 minutes

The single most difficult challenge for those who prepare or review or rely on environmental documents under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) may well be the so-called "cumulative impact analysis."

With a background of 32 years with USDA in Oregon and Washington, presenter Owen Schmidt talks through and demonstrates a six-part model cumulative impact analysis that accounts for "all that science can tell us, all that the law requires, and the rules for when to cut it off safely... both the necessary, and that which can be left out to get to perfect."

This seminar is a must for anyone who writes or reviews NEPA documents, or works on federal and federally funded projects that are subject to NEPA documents.

Major themes include actions that must be included in the analysis, actions that may safely be left out, sorting out the connected-cumulative-similar actions problem, sorting out the direct-indirect-cumulative impacts problem, plus all of the legally recognized reasons an environmental consequence might not be reasonably foreseeable.
