Webinar Title: The National Environmental Policy Act: Critical Path to Major Federal Actions
Webinar No: C02-215W
PDH Credit: 2
Presenter: Krystle McClain, P.E.
Time: From 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM ET
This online engineering PDH live webinar presents foundational understanding of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and practical application principles. While many believe environmental stewardship is the responsibility of environmental engineers/scientists, marine/terrestrial biologists, and historians; the truth is NEPA underlines the importance of teamwork amongst all technical project stakeholders.
The National Environmental Policy Act is the most litigated environmental statute in the United States. Depending on who you ask, NEPA is either viewed in a positive or a negative light. Often the latter is the result of people not being familiar with the regulation and its importance to federal construction projects. Noncompliance with this regulation could halt multibillion-dollar construction projects even before the shovel hits the dirt. NEPA is the foundational regulation by which a national framework was established to protect the environment.
This 2 PDH online live webinar is currently intended for civil engineers, mechanical engineers, architects, planners, and construction project managers. This course will help you avoid common construction project planning pitfalls while ensuring environmental harmony for a major federal action.
This PE continuing education live webinar is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Acquire knowledge of the history and importance of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) by reviewing the history of environmental laws in the United States and its relevance to overall environmental stewardship.
- Recognize the different levels of NEPA through exploring real life examples of the regulation's implementation.
- Investigate key considerations for the Environmental Impact Statement development process while assessing best management practices.
- Identify project team roles and responsibilities as it relates to NEPA document development and NEPA decision document compliance.
