The purpose of an Environmental Assessment (EA) or Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), is to incorporate environmental values into decision making by weighing the environmental impacts of proposed actions and considering alternatives to those actions.   An EIS includes a statement of purpose and need, a description of the affected environment, a range of alternatives, and an analysis of the impacts imposed by a project.  Once the EIS is finalized, a Record of Decision (ROD) is issued and recorded with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
