Writing the Perfect FONSI (Finding of No Significan Impact)
Speaker: Owen Schmidt, former senior counsel, US Dept of Agriculture
Recorded: October 4, 2011
Length: 90 minutes

Federal agencies reportedly review over 50,000 FONSIs per year.

This instructivehow-towebinar focuses on the difficult problem of giving reasons why impacts are not significant,and thus, why an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will not be prepared.

Owen Schmidt, formerly senior counsel, USDA, demonstrates a model FONSI that will account for "all that science can tell us, all that the law requires," and gives you the rules for when to cut it off safely--both what is necessary, and what can be left out to get to perfect.

Registrants will hear details on:

  • How to make any of the findings the law requires
  • The fine points of a fail-safe technique for writing the perfect FONSI
  • Various other issues surrounding the FONSI process

This webinar is a must for planners, environmental specialists, project managers, decision-makers, attorneys, and those in related fields who are responsible for the preparation or review of Environmental Assessments (EAs) and FONSIs prepared under the National Environmental Policy Act.
