CEQA, California Environmental Quality Act, and NEPA, National Environmental Protection Act, are state and federal regulations that help ensure that large projects have negligible environmental damage, or that that damage is mitigated. Although CEQA and NEPA are separate acts, their requirements are similar and the two processes often proceed together. Our final environmental document is a joint document for both.
