Environmental Impact Studies

TES has prepared hundreds of environmental impact assessments in support of the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR). In addition, TES has addressed the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reviews and Exhibit E in support of hydroelectric licensing.

SEQR documents prepared by TES include environmental assessment forms, generic environmental impact statements, and draft and final environmental impact statements.  Staff members have also participated in the regulatory review process as expert witnesses at adjudicatory hearings.

The extent of staff involvement in environmental projects varies depending upon the technical nature of the project and substantive issues. TES often works as part of an interdisciplinary team and assumes responsibility for select portions of technical project documents.
