The Department of Energy (DOE) has made a new policy requesting that certain categorical exclusion determinations will be posted online starting November 2, 2009. The CEs included in this request will have classes of actions from Appendix B to Subpart D of the Department’s NEPA regulations, 10 CFR Part 1021. Either each Program and Field Office will post the CEs on their website, or they will be posted at http://www.gc.energy.gov/nepa.
This is great new! I hope that other agencies will follow suit and post their environmental documents online as well. We will keep updating the NEPA Library with new environmental documents from the DOE and other agencies when we can find them or request them through open records requests.
