What is NEPA? 

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires federal agencies to assess the environmental effects of their proposed actions prior to making decisions.  Projects requiring NEPA also provide specific opportunities for public review and comment.  Learn more about NEPA in the Forest Service and how you can participate in the NEPA process.

Developing Proposal


Reforest areas burned by the following fires that impacted the Mt. Hood National Forest during the summer of 2020: White River, Riverside, and Lionshead.

White River Fire Salvage

The purpose of this project is to recover commercial value in dead and dying trees resulting from the White River Fire through offering them as forest products. The project would mechanically salvage trees on no more than 250 acres.

Under Analysis

Clackamas Fires Roadside Danger Tree Abatement

Areas burned with the Riverside and Lionshead fires on the Clackamas River Ranger District.

Government Camp - Cooper Spur Land Exchange

The Forest Service would convey acreage near Government Camp for acreage of private land near Cooper Spur. This land exchange was mandated by Congress in the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009.

Mt. Hood Wild and Scenic Rivers Planning

The purpose of this comprehensive river management plan is to establish management direction to protect and enhance the river values for nine rivers designated in 2009. The plan establishes river corridor boundaries, user capacities and monitoring.

South Pen Insect and Disease Project

This project will reduce stand density and mitigate loss of trees from insect and disease-related mortality. The high density of trees, largely made up of dry, pine-oak habitat, has created a corridor where insect and disease can easily spread.

White River Fire Roadside Tree Abatement

This project aims to mitigate risks associated with damaged and defective trees along National Forest System (NFS) roads within the perimeter of or immediately adjacent to the White River Fire.

Zigzag Integrated Resource Project

Stands have been identified that need thinning to enhance health and growth. Changes to the road system are included as well as riparian enhancements.

Analysis Completed

Dog River Pipeline Replacement

The existing Dog River pipeline, which is an important component of The Dalles' public drinking water supply, is deteriorating, leaking from tree damage, and exhibiting corrosion. This project proposes to replace the existing pipeline.

Mill Creek Repeater Site Shelter Replacement

Remove failing shelter and replace it with a new prefabricated shelter; conduct road maintenance as needed to complete replacement of shelter.

Site-Specific Invasive Plant Treatment EIS for Mt. Hood NF/CRGNSA (Oregon)

Prescribes treatments for invasive plants on Mt. Hood NF and Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area in Oregon on approx. 13,000 acres (208 sites) with a combination of treatments including herbicide, manual, mechanical and cultural (goat grazing).

Waucoma Huckleberry Enhancement

This project proposes to improve huckleberry understory across the planning area to provide for functioning stand conditions over time that would favor long-term huckleberry production and growth.

On Hold

Grasshopper Restoration Project

The Grasshopper project intends to enhance and restore forest diversity; reduce risks associated with high-intensity wildfires; improve conditions for wildlife and aquatic resources; and provide timber and other forest products.


Clear Branch Dam Improvements

This project looks to conduct dam-specific improvements as well as fisheries related improvements to support local anadromous fisheries.

Mazama Lodge Parking Area Expansion

The Mazamas are proposing to expand an existing 3-4 stall parking area located south of the Mazama Lodge on NFSR 2600530 into approximately 66 parking stalls and one bus pull-out, to mitigate a long-standing visitor safety issue.

Troutdale Air Tanker Base Conveyance

The area contains approximately 9.65 acres and is located at 503 NW Graham Road, City of Troutdale, Oregon. The property consists of two buildings and taxiway. The Troutdale Air Tanker Base is currently closed to all air tanker operations.
