California Environmental Quality Act

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires state  and local public agencies to consider potential  environmental effects of a project before making a discretionary approval. The review process under CEQA includes the analysis and public disclosure of environmental impacts of a proposed project and adopt measures to mitigate any impacts. 

Types of Environmental Documents:

  • Initial Study (IS): A preliminary analysis of a project's potential environmental impacts and significance. The findings of the study decides whether a negative declaration or an EIR shall be prepared.
  • Negative Declaration/Mitigated Negative Declaration (ND/MND): Document detailing the findings related to the environmental conditions of the project. Describes reasons a project will not have a significant effect and proposes measures, if any, to mitigate or avoid potential significant effects. 
  • Environmental Impact Report (EIR): Detailed review of a proposed project, including its adverse affect on the environment, measures to avoid or reduce impacts, and alternatives to the project.
