Other Resources

The following Web sites provide access to repositories of environmental reports and case studies for a wide variety of energy projects, including tribal and non-tribal projects and projects involving other types of energy resources.

Environmental Studies Repositories

A number of organizations maintain repositories of EISs and environmental assessments (EAs), some of which are specific to energy development on tribal lands.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Environmental Impact Statement Database provides a searchable listing of draft and final EISs that have been submitted to the EPA (searchable by keyword in title, publication date, agency, and state). The EPA does not provide a copy of the document itself, but information regarding summaries of EPA comments can be obtained at the Web site.

The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of the General Counsel provides lists and links to various DOE NEPA Documents (draft and final EISs, EAs, supporting documents, and supplemental analyses) prepared by the agency.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission eLibrary provides a search menu to find EAs, EISs, environmental studies, and a full range of supporting documentation prepared by the agency.
